Do not stay here.
The woman at the front desk was the most unfriendly front desk attendant I have ever come across. You would think the hotel would put someone there that actually knew something about customer service and greeting guests. She acted as if I was interrupting whatever else she was doing besides her job of checking people in. Said literally 6 words total to me, let's count them: "last name?" "credit card?" "sign here!!" I was afraid I might sign on the wrong line or look at her wrong and she'd pull a soup nazi on me and yell "NO ROOM FOR YOU!"
Gave us a room next to the maid's closet, which of course was noisy and we could tell it wouldn't get better. Switched us to a different room on the west end of the hotel which was even worse, as the burger king drive through was right outside the window and you can clearly hear every person's order. I think I have the menu memorized.
The noise at night was unbearable. A nice little orchestra of Incredibly loud train/plane/tank? noise that would occur intermittently and last for a few minutes, followed by the slamming of the stairwell door, mixed in with a little neighbors tv and their intimate sounds. Yes, thin walls.
The place is old, has a cigarette stench, unfriendly staff, noisy rooms, and you don't even get shampoo or soap?! It comes out of a dispenser like in your highschool locker room.
If you want a hotel that does it right, you can get a comparable rate at the far superior Holiday Inn Express at Jantzen Beach, one exit away.
