I checked in very tired and needing a quick nap before I had work obligations. I discovered I had no shower curtain. I called the front desk. About 15 minutes later I told a housekeeper on my floor. It ended up taking almost an hour to get a shower curtain. No Nap. The closet door won't stay closed. The next day as I am working at the desk using my laptop, my desk chair was swapped out with a clean one so mine could be cleaned. The new chair is fabric and padded.....and was soaking wet from being cleaned. I guess they thought I needed to stop working for a couple hours. Noise carries too well in this hotel. The rooms are very small. The internet seems slow.
The interesting part of this hotel, to some people, is that it used to be a jail. Executions were performed at the jail. They did the hangings on the second floor utilizing a trap door.
End result is that I am checking out 1 day early and will be staying at another hotel chain and won't be staying at this hotel in the future.
