I travel to this area monthly for work. I usually stay at the Candlewood Suites next door to this Baymont location. This time, I figured I would save the company a little money and try out the Baymont (Baymont's Priceline rate of $63 vs. Candlewood's corporate rate of $73). Big mistake.
Both hotels are listed as 2 stars on Priceline, but Candlewood is a much cleaner property. The Baymont is very dirty--stained sheets, stained pillow cases, all 8 pillows in two different rooms I stayed in were extensively sweat-stained underneath the pillow cases. The hotel smells. The wallpaper is peeling. The old drop ceiling with the flourescent lighting and brown carpet in the hallways is super dated and depressing (the off smell adds to the sense of depression). Both of my rooms had crumbs in the desk chairs, both had hair on the bathroom floors.
The Baymont offers a free continental breakfast while Candlewood does not, BUT the breakfast is pretty spartan. I grabbed a yogurt, but I ended up tossing it when I discovered that the lid was already open.
The best thing about Baymont is the desk staff; they don't present well (they look like a bunch of auto mechanics with dirty, untucked uniform shirts and stained, chipped name tags), but they are pleasant and helpful. I don't fault them for management taking exceptionally poor care of this property.
For me, paying the extra $10 to stay at Candlewood (or Comfort Suites for that matter) is totally worth it for my future travel.
