We stayed here on a Saturday night for my daughter's pageant at the nearby convention center. The location is the only decent thing about this place. I paid $125 to stay in a suite and had to park on the street as there wasn't enough room in the parking lot. As the crabby lady behind the counter told us, "Well, if you do find a space, let me know and I'll give you a parking pass." Classy. Even classier were the nasty old brass doorknockers gleaming dirtily in the dimly-lit, gross hallway. Anyway, as soon as I entered the room, I wanted to grab a pair of cleaning gloves and a hazmat suit - the sofa had a terrible stain that looked like someone had died on it; the mini-fridge was stained and gross; and the balcony was covered in bird droppings as if someone had not cleaned it in years. We didn't dare spend any time in the 'living room' portion of the suite - the chair next to the previously-mentioned sofa was in about the same condition, and the TV hutch (housing the incredibly-dated tube TV) looked like a Goodwill special from 1970 with many chips and stains. The free breakfast was of the same quality as the room - the coffee had run out, the juice machine was broken, and the chairs and tables were incredibly stained and dirty. We weren't ever in a hurry to return to our room, but when we did return, we always had a long wait for the elevator. Just the icing on the cake, I guess. You couldn't pay me to stay here again - what a sad disappointment on what should have been a fun-filled weekend.
