This hotel claims to be undergoing "renovations" with half the buildings out of inventory but no evident construction going on. The facility appeared abandoned and, had I another option, I would have found other lodging. My room was quite far away from the front desk and up a flight of stairs (no elevator) because I expressed my concern to the desk about a first floor location in a nearly empty and lonely location. The industrial stairwell did not appear to be on a regular cleaning schedule. The design of the room was unsafe: the upholstered chair at the 2' by 2' desk (totally inadequate) required careful leveraging to slide it under the desk -- a critical safety concern since the chair, heavy and difficult to move, sat BLOCKING the walkway between the bed and the door. Heaven help anyone trying to exit quickly! Other features of the room that merit mention: the toilet flush handle was situated less than 1" from the side wall and turned BACKWARDS to flush-- making it difficult even for my small hand. The mattresses were so high off the floor a normal sized adult (5'6") had to climb into the bed. The "newly renovated" bathroom floor tiles showed moldy grout and the shower floor tiles were seriously sloped and cracked as well as mildewed.
