The hotel was nice enough. I wish it had an outside pool to lay by, but the hot tub definitely had strong jets.
I asked Esteban (who had quite a flat affect) if the hotel pumped scent into the air, as I smelled a very strong scent (air freshener?) at breakfast, in lobby, elevator, and area around elevator. He said no, someone sprayed air freshener. All I know is I was about ready to have an allergy-induced asthma attack multiple times due to the spray. NOT OKAY.
The room appeared clean, but, as it seems in most hotels, the bathroom floor was not clean (dirty socks & feet as a result). I had asked for a quiet room and was placed next to elevator. When moved rooms, I was placed next to freeway. I didn't think I would hear the freeway much, but I did.
When I checked in, I asked the staff member (more gregarious than day shift) if my reservation had a note about late check-out, at 2-3pm (flight not until 1945). He said yes, no problem. The next day, upon checkout at 2:10pm, Esteban told me he was going to charge me another night for staying past 2pm. I told him no, he wasn't, as if it was going to be a 'problem' (resulting in charge), then I should've been told when I called the hotel when I made reservation, or when I checked in the night before, versus being told it would be no problem!
I have yet to check my monthly credit card statement, but my receipt showed no extra charges, that I am aware of.
Standard Hampton breakfast fare. There's a Twin Peaks in the parking lot, and after I left, I realized there was also a PF Changs (would've enjoyed eating there versus at Mimi's).
