Ok, to start, the staff was quite nice to us, and understanding of our disappointments. No issue there or with the appearance of the room or lobby. Very nice.
Please be aware of some things. To start, we usually stay in the national chain motels, but have stayed in these fancy downtown places enough to know you just don't get the perks you get with a cheap motel. Not without paying anyway. So I suppose it was my own fault when I read "convenient parking" that I didn't delve further. It is convenient for sure, but hardly included in the price of the room. Go in and out a few times and it will add up to about the same as the $15 overnight charge.
The TV was laughable, really, even the cheapest places have new flat screens with remotes that work well. Refrigerator, yes--hey, where's the microwave!! No microwave to heat our leftovers for breakfast because oh my, when they said 'continental breakfast' they meant it. Except for toast and coffee, it was all cold fare. Nothing like the cheap motels now offer. So, of course, there was no microwave even there so we could heat our food.
Of course the fact that we were not left coffee, etc, and that the pot was dirty and had old coffee, truly could have been a one-time oversite. But what a pain to go down from the 9th floor for coffee.
We would not return to this hotel, but rather, stay at the Hampton, Travelodge, or just some other roadside place.
