Trying to keep expenses down for a group I am working for, but this place was barely tolerable. I won't stay at a place that is not clean or safe, so that is all I can say for this motel.
Because I was staying for more than a few days, they told me the housekeeping would only come Tuesdays and Fridays. Not even to make the bed, empty the trash, or change the towels. So I have a pile of trash, a worn thin towel to reuse, and a lumpy bed that stays unmade.
I am traveling with my dog and he gets to stay free, but that makes me wonder about prior guests and who they traveled with...
The walls are thin and noisy people outside wake me periodically. Also the couple upstairs got my dog barking...
The internet is non-existent, altho I was charged $3 a day for the privilege to use it. Some days the connection was not even strong enough to get on to use my code; I had to use one of the random unsecured connections available, which I usually defaulted to anyway. I had to talk to the tech support one night, and he checked the connection and said it was great, that I was probably in a dead zone or that the hotel needed to up their connection points.
No refrigerator or microwave available, a definite negative for me traveling with a dog. I also like to have my oatmeal in the morning and make coffee. No coffee maker, hot water, or hair dryer. The shower (no tub) is like in an RV - the plumbing comes out of the ceiling and faces the corner so the water won't run out around the shower curtain. I am 110 pounds, and found it too small as the handicap rail takes up some room. So it is really like trying to negotiate a shower in an RV, one of those over-the-toilet tiny ones.
The pillow smells bad, so I covered it with towels. No other sanitation issues that I can tell.
Has a pool, but I haven't gone at all as I did not bring a suit and it is cold outside anyway.
The convenient part of the this hotel is that it is near Coddington Mall, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe's, so it is easy to get a quick meal on the go or pick up an item I may need. It is also close to the dog day care I use for my dog while I work (Paradise Pet Resort - highly recommend!).
Parking lot is well lit and I can put the car right by my room. I still bring everything inside, but it feels like a safer place to leave my car than some hotels.
The people at the desk are very sweet and helpful.
I'm not sure I would stay here again, mostly because I need reliable internet and like a frig in the room. But I certainly can't endorse it.
