Its like the saying goes... If you put lipstick on a pig, you still have a pig.
To start, there wasn't anything abjectly wrong with the hotel, just a whole lot of things that fell short. The room had a modern, renovated feel. The shower had nice hot water. The bed was comfy. And that's about the end of my list of pros.
Who renovates a bathroom and doesn't put in a place to hang a towel?
Our toilet kept running after it flushed... Seriously wtf?
They saw fit to include the standard assortments of mini soaps and hand creams in the bathroom - except one of the creams was half empty, with a notable feel like it was used and not properly replaced. Really?
We could not turn off the ceiling fan in the bedroom, so we couldn't turn on the main light, because the two are tied together.
Our reservation promised us a fireplace - the inn has none.
The greeting staff was less than professional and warm.
And the list goes on...
So in summary, the got the general broad brush strokes but failed on all the little details. If you have an option to stay somewhere better, you should!
