We spent three nights in room 334. The good things: comfortable bed, working heat/air conditioner, and good water pressure.
The mildly inconvenient: I am 5'5" and could just stand under the shower head with an inch to spare - he is over 6 feet and had to crouch down. The room was clean when we got here, but housekeeping did not do a great job on the bathroom the next two days...since it was our own hair in the shower it wasn't gross, but as the mother of 8 children one of the things I look forward to on vacation is not having to clean the bathroom before I use it :)
The reason we won't ever stay here again: Breakfast! The advertisements say a continental breakfast is provided. The hotel is a big U shape, with the office on one end and the breakfast room on the other. When we checked in, I asked where breakfast was and was told it would be in the breakfast room. Morning 1, breakfast room is dark and locked so we walked to the office and were told, "Yeah, she didn't make it in today." They had coffee in the office as well as miniature prepackaged muffins and miniature prepackaged danish (smaller than my iPhone). He is diabetic and could not eat either. I tried......they were so stale and crumbly I looked for an expiration date thinking they were really old. We went out and bought breakfast, thinking "things happen" and not feeling it was that big of a deal. Day 2: breakfast room dark and locked, office says, "She didn't open it today." Same stale prepackaged muffins and danish offered in the office. I requested more coffee for room because they leave you enough for one pot - which is two cups - and we went out and bought breakfast. Day 3: Surprise! Breakfast room dark and locked. I walked to the office (remember this is either around a huge U shaped building or through a rainy parking lot) and said, "No breakfast, again?" and the lady in the office said, "Oh yes! There's coffee and danish right over there." I wasn't sure whether to point out that stale danish does not a continental breakfast make, or ask if I had been lied to previously when they said it was in the breakfast room and the lack of breakfast was because some unknown person didn't come do it. In my opinion, this was false advertising as there was no continental breakfast offered on any of the three mornings we were here. We aren't high maintenance - toast would have sufficed, or anything else that a diabetic could eat and that was fresh. Instead we had to buy breakfast each day, an expense we should not have had to incur sine we purposely choose hotels with complimentary continental breakfasts. We won't stay here again.
