1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We arrived at night with time only to drop our bags and head out to dinner and a show at the Van Wezel. There was no time to look around. Arriving back after midnight, we found no hot water. The ceiling tile above the bathroom sink was wet and had black mold on it. Disgusting. I snapped a picture and brought it to the manager at the front desk. He came to the room to advise us that the hot and cold faucets were reversed. By then it was too late for us to shower as we had to travel to another commitment. He wasn't as concerned about the wet and moldy ceiling tile that had obviously been there a while. He gave us a modest break on the room price for the inconvenience. Not wanting an argument, we accepted it and went on our way. It was clear that he wanted us to use the shower so he wouldn't have to give us a price break once he 'discovered' the switched hot/cold lines. Does anyone think they were switched overnight? Does anyone think the mold ocurred overnight?

Room Tip: Inspect the room, bathroom and ceiling tiles before unpacking. Check the water lines.

In town for a cruise and spending a couple of days enjoying the local site. this hotel was a good jumping off point for a little bit of everywhere. Being a Super 8 we were not expecting a 4 star hotel but they were clean and very nice. The free breakfast was great for us hitting the road on or daily trek. We stayed two night and slept well. The kids enjoyed the clean pool and that is always a plus... Definitely recommend this for the bargain traveler. Only complaint was the sign out from listed one price but then when you get to the office. you get the "We only had one at that price but it's taken however we have these available at a different price" Bait and switch. However it was still a good deal...
