Worst hotel stay ever. Price was OK, but what a mess. Worse than just being refurbished. Here with my wife, daughter, and grandsons in adjoining rooms. We were initially on the 11the floor. When out and about in town yesterday (nice that the courtesy van takes you to and fro) there was a 3-alarm fire on the twelfth floor, which means lots of weather damage on the eleventh floor and below. Ceiling leaks everywhere, and some ceilings falling down. Did they tell guests as they were getting back to the hotel? NO! Just let guests discover the water damage in their room. So having complained, for the rest of the week they’ve got us on the third floor – no longer adjoining with the kids – no hot water in shower. How about that refurb? One elevator still not working, and wires hanging out of the boxes where the up and down call buttons ought to be. No carpet heading toward breakfast area – just old glue on concrete. From the posts here, looks like refurb is taking really long. You’d think that HoJo being part of Wyndam it’d be important to do what’s right for their guests.
