“OK service, but run-down and problematic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The staff here is friendly and helpful when engaged--and that is definitely the high point of the hotel. They are a popular location for conferences, so they probably try to be on their game so they can continue to attract conference business. However, facility leaves a lot to be desired.

The rooms actually remind me of college dorms: heavy metal doors, spartan carpet and wallpaper, hard beds, and very simple/cheap furnishing and fixtures. Everything is older and in need of repair or update. Our TV would randomly turn off and on, our remote stopped working and they didn't have any batteries (??) so they had to steal a remote out of another room, the A/C unit sounded like a freight train, the "clean" bedding placed on our beds had several large reddish stains, and the towels they put in the bathroom are frayed and ratty.

The staff is reactive when you approach them about issues--for example the broken remote. At some point a guest across the hall left a big smelly tray of food outside their room and no one picked it up until we called housekeeping. They don't seem to be proactively looking at the hotel though and making sure things are in good condition. Why wait until someone complains to fix it?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I come to this hotel about four times a year. The staff always helps me with its van service to get to my elderly fathers home. Recently I had a 95 th birthday party for my Dad at the Embers Restaurant. Everyone ordered from the menu and commented how great the food was.
