I wish my only problem with this hotel was its fraudulent claim of being a 3 star property. That takes a distant back seat to the fact that this hotel is making me lose days out of my life due to an allergy attack and asthma problems because the rooms are infused with a cigarette smell covered up by room deoderizer. This is supposed to be a non smoking hotel with a penalty for smoking. If customers are incurring penalties for smoking, that money isn't being spent to remove the smoke smell from the rooms.
For the healthy people who don't understand -- imagine being sick and not being able to do anything you planned - unexpectedly. For those of you who suffer from allergies and asthma as I do, I say avoid this hotel like a plague.
Now for the ratings misrepresentation. This hotel has powdered cream for coffee. A real 3 star property would have real creamers for the coffee. This property has a work station chair that tilts forward and can't be adjusted - that makes it impossible to get comfortable so you can work on your computer. Also, there is no lowered level so you can type comfortablely on your computer. The pillows are masses of packed, mis-shapen polyester. The toilet paper is scratchy. There is a pop bottle remover attached to the plastic vanity. You pull the tissue out of a hole in the plastic vanity. The heating unit is not thermostat controlled. It's a manually controlled box by the windows. It's loud and you can't hear the TV over it. The furniture is among the cheapest I've ever seen. It's press board with wood colored paper laminate. It's like something from a best western, 20 years ago.
But my first complaint is that this place stinks and it puts people like myself - allergy and asthma suffers - at risk.
