Nice and clean, but that is where the good part of this property ends. Guests (?) are welcomed at the door with a notice that there is no payphone, no public restrooms. Plus a sign on the back of these signs, not to remove the sign (huh????).
This HIE has all the warm and charm of a State Juvenile Correctional Facility. There are ‘signs’, meaning warnings and admonitions posted all over the place. Don’t do this, you must do that, etc. They are not responsible for this and that. There is even a sign on the room ‘fridge that warns that if anything spoils in the refrigerator, they are not responsible. Now, I understanding posting the rules, but darn, I felt like I was being yelled at at every turn. How about a ‘please’ or ‘thank-you for your cooperation’
The front desk guy was friendly enough and I can put that in the plus column. The rooms, lobby & breakfast area are clean and updated, another plus. However, the computer in the business center was down, and the front desk said he would put in a work order. No help there. Fitness room was hot with no thermostat to cool it down (and of course a big sign that said Absolutely No Beverages allowed. Can’t have anyone properly hydrated while working out I guess). My key quit working, that happens. The housekeeper was nice enough to let me in once and the front desk later burned me a new key. No ID or anything, just give them a room number and you get a key. I guess they don’t have a rule about following basic guest security procedures. Other little details were missing- no coffee available in the lobby less than a half hour after the 930 breakfast time was over. The hours were posted on a sign after all. No newspapers available at check in; stuff like that. Sorry folks, I won’t be back. Bad mojo.
