Arrived at the hotel at 10PM - at 10:15 entered my first room to find that the previous tenant had smoked heavily in the non-smoking room...back to the front desk. In my 2nd room, a double queen rather than the king room I was originally in, by around 10:30. My business partner's first room was filthy so he went down and asked to get us both into two of their king suites...on the move again. I got into my king suite around 10:45 only to find that is was climate controlled by what they called "central air"...it was close to 80 in the room and the small thermostat was showing it to be 64* so the A/C wouldn't come on...I just sat there for about five minutes sweating and listening to the lady in the next room hacking up a lung. I finally decided that in spite of the fact that I had just driven 8 hours and was exhausted, I had to get into a room with A/C. At the front desk I spent twenty minutes while a guy who never apologized or acted evenly remotely concerned that this was my 4th room, kept telling me that he couldn't find any rooms available (after he tried to put me back in the smoky room). He finally said he found what I requested and sent me away to find my forth room which he didn't tell me was a room with a king bed and a TV and nothing more...the single smallest room I've ever stayed in. At 11:30 I turned on the A/C and settled in. I've never had hotel employees care any less or act more apathetic in all my travels. Not one apology in 3 different room changes. When u couple that with dirty air vents and really old towels that have hair weaved into them from years of use, I would have to say to stay away from this place.
