The convenience of where the hotel was located, everything was in walking distance
While I don't think it was a bad area, there were a lot of people outside around the building. I didn't feel very comfortable getting in/out of my vehicle being that I was traveling alone. The toilet was also broken in the room, it was constantly running water. Check-in lady wasn't very friendly but the gentleman when I checked out was very nice
There isn't carpeting so you know that the floor is clean. The television worked well, even during several storms that occurred while we were there. They have guest laundry facilities.
No coffee pot in the room, you have to ask for a hair dryer and iron and ironing board, only a few rooms had refrigerators and microwaves and those were booked the whole time we were there. The staff told me that they didn't have something and then my husband went and asked for the same thing later and they had plenty. They only leave soap ( that smelled terrible) and shampoo. No lotion, conditioner or any of the other little goodies that they usually leave.
The first room they gave us had the air conditioner hanging off he wall and a makeshift unit on the floor, the second room they gave us the smoke alarm was hanging off the wall and the bathroom looked nothing like the pictures it was old and very outdated. The room was dirty and the hallway smelled like cigarette smoke. Oh and the staff was VERY unfriendly. We left and went to another hotel.
Comfortable beds, clean up to date rooms, and friendly staff.
