We arrived at the hotel, and were told that we would be staying at their Motor Lodge which is about a block away. I had booked through the Delta Airlines website and nowhere did it say this. We did not even know there was another part of the hotel. We asked if we could be transferred to the main hotel and were told they did not have anything available for our stay. I can understand that since it was last minute that we asked. The front desk clerk told us that the motorlodge had been theough a upgrade and that it was beautiful inside. When we entered (and by the way if you have a hard time walking ask for a ground floor unit as there is no elevator) it really looked like nothing had been done to the room since the 80's. I am not saying it was old or dirty but if it had been through an upgrade I would have expected more. Another thing I could not understand as since there are 2 beds in the room, why was there only 1 extra blanket in the closet, than seemed odd to me.
On the whole it was just an ok experience to us, and if I had known they just built a brand new Holiday Inn Express down the street and we would have stayed there instead.
