I read many glowing reviews on this hotel, so expected good things for our family. One of the first things we saw as we turned into the hotel was a large Girls and Dance sign in a small building adjoining the hotel's parking lot. Not a good sign. My husband talked to the staff and was able to check out a room. The room was okay, but he said it smelled in the hotel and saw clothes just laying around in the hallway. Meantime, I hung out in the entry-way and wandering down the hall toward a conference/meeting area saw chunks of the wall missing and paint gone. It didn't look well kept. Another "dance club" nearby had free admission with a room card. We decided on many fronts, this was definitely not a great family stay and were surprised no reviews have mentioned it. Even after telling our friends, they shared how people know it's not in a great spot and it's a so, so place. We've had many good experiences, so thankful this hasn't been the norm with on-line booking. Hope this helps other who may be better off at the Lamplighter Inn & Suites North or stay where we did in the Greenstay.
