Checked n 7/22/13. Rate of $129 for double queen.
It was apparent when I entered lobby this was a older HI. Not surprising as Goldsboro is a small town, and I wasn't expecting much. Upon entering my room(333), I noticed it was fairly small, again, not surprising. Sticking out like a sore thumb was a small fan sitting on top of the window AC unit, not a good sign.
The room was a bit warm,but I was hoping it was just due to the AC being turned up by the housekeeping staff. I checked the thermostat and it was on 67. It was obvious there was an issue, but at the time, I didn't call the desk hoping the room would cool down. Shortly thereafter, around 7:30pm, my room phone rang. The caller said, "hey buddy, I heard your HVAC, had issues and we weren't able to get to it earlier, is it still a problem?" I told them, I was a new guest, but yeah, there was a fan in the room and it was a bit hot. He said he would be there shortly to check it out. After about 10 minutes he hadn't shown up, and I decided I would rather try and switch rooms rather than sit thru a repair project starting at 9pm, when I had planned on eating some take out in the room.
I went down to the desk and explained the situation. The person at the desk had no clue about any issues with the room, but checked to see if she could find another room to put me in. She said they were full. I went back to my room but never saw a maintenance person. I did leave for a bit to go across the street to get some food, but never did see or hear from maintenance again, and its currently 11:30 pm.
Granted this isn't an emergency, but I wonder why This room was ever sold in the first place? I could be next door at a newer HE Express not sweating.
I travel for business and my first two choices are Marriott then Hilton properties. Unfortunately there were not Marriott properties in the area, so I chose the Hampton. I know things happen, but this only reinforces my loyalty to Marriott, and if Marriott isn't available in the area I'm traveling, ill not automatically default to Hilton, as Holiday Inn properties seem to be catching up to low level Hilton's in many locales.
