Have you ever had the experience of walking into a hotel room and wondering how long you can tolerate the perfume smell that is covering up the lack of cleanliness or the mildew and mold? Thankfully, I missed out on that experience this trip.
When we got to the room it looked clean. It smelled clean. And it stayed smelling clean.
It is a modest hotel. There are not a lot of frills. There are some great points and there are some less winning points, but overall it was a good hotel for the money.
Here are the positives:
The rooms really are quite clean. The furniture decent. The beds comfortable.
The cinnamon rolls are outstanding on the buffet and the hours of breakfast are great.
The entire hotel smells and looks good and shows signs of consistent upkeep.
The staff are polite.
Here are the negatives:
There is very little nearby in terms of eating. (but, if you have a car, it is a non-issue)
The hotel pool was very heavy in the chlorine.
Front desk seemed a little understaffed and it was hard to get their attention or you would have to stop talking while the one person answered the phone.
I wish I could give it a little extra half point. It was slightly better than average and I would definitely stay again if a training were in the same area.
