I decided to give this hotel another chance due to its proximity to I-95 and Subway and a McDonalds and gas station. Again, unfortunately, the hotel left much to be desired. During my stay I again saw two ants---one on the table and one in my bed---and found another stray hair probably left by another guest. I also found a hair barrett on the floor near the door.
The heat in the room is an old system and it is not central heat. It took almost a full day for the room to heat up to a semi-comfortable temp and the fact that it was about 30 degrees outside overnight did not help. I checked in at approx 2 pm and had the heat on "full blast" all afternoon and night and when I checked out at 10 am the next morning, the room was barely room temperature.
The wallpaper was coming away from the wall in my room and the hotel has that old, lived-in and worn out look. The room is best classified as a dive that is only for the person on a very strict budget. Nobody should bring their wife or significant other to this hotel and definitely not the kids. Spend a few more dollars and get a better place to stay. While the front desk staff was friendly, they could not make up for the failings of this old hotel which is badly in need of updates and more careful cleaning.
Advice: do not stay here. Stay around the corner at the Candlewood Suites or try another exit off of I-95 altogether. I have given up on this hotel and it appears that management has also given up. Buyer beware.
