I've stayed at this location a few times while passing through, and it seems to get worse each time. My most recent stay, being just a few days ago, proved to be the most disappointing of all. The rooms are advertised as being 'modern' or 'updated'- though the only noticeable 'update' is a coat of paint & thinner sheets. I wouldn't have minded the new sinks as advertised- but during my 3 stays here, I've yet to see one of the modern bowl sinks.
Upon entering the room, I had to adjust the air temperature- which promptly shut off 5 minutes after. I couldn't get it to work properly at all. Second, there was evidently a leak under the sink- upon coming back from dinner, there was a large puddle in the floor that I had to mop up with a towel. I didn't bother calling the desk- given what little English was spoken & the attitude of the desk clerks, I figured I was better off just cleaning the water up myself.
I didn't even bother using the shower- when I tried to turn the water on, the entire handle pulled completely away from the wall. The bathroom could have been a lot cleaner as well.
The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were far too soft. I had to bunch them up for any kind of support. Given only 3, it made for a bad night of sleep. Not only was the pedestrian traffic unbearably loud, but a train shook the entire building right when I was finally drifting off to sleep. Checkout was noon, but I left a full 2 hours before that- couldn't wait to get out.
Advertised price was $75- wound up paying over $90 after taxes- & the wifi wasn't even free. For this price, I could have gone a few more blocks to Holiday Inn, which is what I plan on doing the next time I'm in town.
I know you get what you pay for- but for this price, it should have been a LOT better.
