The rate on this hotel was very inexpensive- almost half anything nearby or in Cleveland, so as the saying goes, you get what you pay for - I needed a room as I was running the Cleveland Marathon- needed to be relatively close so I would have time to drive in and park before the race prior to 7am- so that is why I chose this hotel -
The hotel is quite a way down Brecksville rd- almost to where it becomes I-77 again- we missed it the first time by as there is a Mexican place right in front of it-
RIght next door is a dump or quarry or something- shielded fairly well by the trees in the parking lot- but we saw a stray cat as we went in and when we mentioned it to the manager she said, "oh yeah, there are 4 of them"
The main doors were broken so the side door is taped so it always opens- so no secure entry - this door opens right to where the elevators are-
The manager was nice and got us an extra blanket- which was not folded, however when she brought it to us
The room had a microwave (older turn the dial style)
4 cup coffee maker- only one packet of coffee and it was decaf
the bathroom was very shabby- one set of thin, small towels- the hand towel had holes
I turned on the hot water and the handle came off in my hand- luckily I could screw it back on
the sink stopper was closed with no way to open it, but I could pull it out
the front panel of the sink was missing-
the area around the tub was stained- not inviting for a shower- no bath mat
The pillows were flat and the pillow cases and sheets had holes
the blanket seemed ok - the furniture was dusted and the carpet looked freshly vacuumed- but we still didn't walk barefooted -
our window overlooked the parking lot, so we could see our car
There is supposed to be a breakfast in the morning but since we left at 5:15am I didn't see it
OH and whomever else was on the floor decided to come in at 2am and yell at each other up and down the hallway - not really the hotels fault but not good for sleeping!
Overall, if you just need a place to sleep for a night, its fine- would not stay there more than one night at a time for sure- It is just run down and a little shabby- I just find it hard to deal with linens with holes in them-
