I arrived at 7 PM to find no front desk clerk on duty. While I waited for him to appear, I studied a sign posted on the desk: "Yes, it's true! There is no elevator in our hotel! But please ask us for luggage assistance." I'm not sure who would have toted my bags, since they didn't even have enough staff to keep someone up front. But after waiting and making some clatter, someone did appear to check me in.
I booked through Priceline and bid $33, which became $45 with taxes and fees. This cheap rate took a lot of the edges off an otherwise disappointing stay. The hotel didn't appear to be anywhere close to full, judging from the empty lobby and parking lot. But when I asked for a King room, the clerk said "Well, Priceline has booked you a King. But if they had booked you two doubles, we're now charging to change Priceline room types.
Wow. What an aggressive anti-Priceline bias! But OK. At least he gave me a room on the first floor :-) It was, as it almost always is with Priceline, as far from the front desk as possible. The room was adequate but had not been updated to the current Courtyard standard. (Neither had the lobby.) The only "modern" amenity was the extra electrical outlet built into each of the bedside light fixtures, which I always appreciate.
There were a couple of hairs in the bathtub. I don't consider this a huge deal, but it does make me question the thorough work of the housekeeping crew.
THIS HOTEL DOES NOT HAVE Wi-Fi! I can't remember the last time I stayed somewhere that didn't even attempt to provide Wi-Fi. Often, it's extremely overpriced, but it's almost always offered.
So, no elevator, no Wi-Fi, inadequate staffing, and a room decorated in the early 90's. Most hotels try to refresh themselves regularly to command decent rates. This hotel seems to have decided not to go through any renovations, but has instead dropped its rates and tried to fill its rooms through Priceline.
Not bad for $33, but I wouldn't pay much more.
