This hotel has not aged well, but golly, has it aged.
The layout of this hotel means you will hike from the check-in desk to your room, so wear your sneakers.
The last couple times I've been there, the night crew seems ill trained. It almost appears the hotel has hired high school students, doesn't train them, and leaves them alone at the desk without so much as a phone number to call if they get confused. Check-in not only took a long, long time - I'm a Platinum Rewards Member, so it should be very, very quick - but the person at the front desk didn't seem to understand what he was doing.
My room was old. The furniture was old. The carpet was old and worn. The bathroom had harsh lighting. The curtains were old. The desk chair was stained. The TVs were black and white. OK, that last one isn't true, but the stuff in the hotel felt that old.
This place is more motel than hotel.
It's located in a commercial area with car dealerships and other cheap motels. Your room is practically on the highway, but louder.
There are better options - like the Residence Inn - nearby. Save yourself the misery. Don't stay here.
