The jelly: ( sweet) : every employee was sweet, accommodating and wanted your stay to be primo! Everyone welcomed you, offered to be assistance. We were given extra towels by the housekeeper upon arrival to the room, as she noticed we were checking in with 4, but rooms had only 3 towels. Had choices of pillows- hard or soft. Linens and towels were clean, neatly placed. The room was neat, and the housekeeper seemed to take pride in what she had control over-
Breakfast was good, hot, Many choices-
The sticky peanut butter: upon entering the building- the looming smell if stale smoke was noticeable, very noticeable-
The room: water was inconsistent running hot and cold - mostly cold- brrr! Room had 2 queen beds.. (The following observations were not due to basic housekeeping.)The room must have had a dog ( or a few dogs) stay there. The room smelled like damp dog, and there were stains in the carpet- the stairwell carpet was worn, the rubber edging was stretched on the end of stair. I was worried about catching the heel of my shoe, while taking the stairs. The outside pool was across the parking lot. It was small! Since you have to cross the parking lot to access it, didn't really appear too kid friendly.
Beds were very hard. You could hear the people through walls. Hotel was similar in price ( actually 10.00 more) as other hotels, got good reviews, offered queen beds- thought it would be good for an overnight. Owner needs to put money in cleaning or replacing carpets, better mattresses, updating the overall look, etc.. If pet friendly, should designate those rooms for pet owners- just as smoking/ non designated.
The staff really deserve kudos for being so awesome- they definitely outshine the owner and the owner's interest/ investment in the hotel. (Like... you can't blame the waitress for the cook's lack of abilities)
