This is the first time we have lodged here. The parking is tight if you try to park in between the lines, so the best approach here is to gauge what a normal parking spot size is and park accordingly. It seems a large portion of the guests have embraced this idea.
The first impression of the building public area indicates that upkeep is maintained fairly well.
The front desk, pool and conference areas look nice. Our room however was a different story.
We reserved one of their largest rooms which was not a suite, but included a kitchenette. The dark carpet looked old and really requires a good cleaning, if not replacement. The bathroom was fairly clean, but I noticed a little dirt in the corners behind the toilet. The shower was clean, but the tub drain didn't drain well shortly after beginning to use the shower.
In the kitchen area, there was an insulated thermal pot for either hot or cold liquids that should really stunk and be thrown away.
We had two queen beds in our room. At least one of the mattresses was thin and is well beyond its useful life. The mattress side sheet had a stain on the side, which looked like it could have been a blood stain. The sheet was not replaced the by housekeeping the next day either.
The window air conditioner cooled, but the temperature rheostat control didn't work. So while operating, it was very cold in the room or you had to turn off the cooling switch to stop the cooling. This room had a working gas fireplace but I wasn't interested in regulating temperatures with both items.
We didn't care for the room card key system they use. You place the key card in the door slot and a sign on the door says you must wait a minimum of 20 seconds for the door lock to release. It was actually closer to 30 seconds with one card and another card required a little over a minute to unlock the door. Not a good system.
So the good news: There are no bed bugs seen or noted. Coffee is available in the lobby. Located in the heart of downtown Keystone.
All in all, the White House could be a great lodging option if:
1. The ownership/management were to update their rooms.
2. Mandate improved cleaning procedures for their staff and institute cleaning compliance verification.
