Well we gave this place two tries. After a disastrous first stay (we found a, ummmm, personal item in our bed between the sheets) that could not be refunded because we booked on an internet site we were given a comp night to come back again. 3 years later we returned. We were greeted with a lovely "we will try to get it right for you this time!" Champagne in our room on ice and a nice note from the management. First thing I did was pull back the blankets to find-surprise! A big old crusty spot on my flat sheet. Immediately called the front desk and asked for a new sheet. I tried to tell them what was wrong but I was cut off with a "housekeeping will be right up". Honestly I could have called back and explained the situation but I was already getting a free night so what else could they do? You'd think they would have been extra careful since we have already had such a bad experience. I don't need to give them a third try. Housekeeping came up and handed me a sheet and left. After changing my own sheet I tried to just pretend that the rest of the sheets and blankets were clean. Breakfast is okay but overpriced (luckily ours was free both times we stayed).
Beyond the sheets, this is a "renovated" old hotel. Its not spotless and it certainly isn't the ritz, but its affordable and convenient and probably better than the motels across the street. I guess they are inconsistent because some people seem to love it but I wouldn't go back even for free. The front desk and management are nice but housekeeping clearly does not change the sheets on a regular basis.
