We stayed for one nigt, after attending a concert at Spirit Mountain. It was nice to be able to enjoy the concert and not have to drive ome afterwards. Here are my observations about the room:
Liked: Lighted, magnifying make-up mirror mounted on wall swivel
Large granite countertop area in bathroom, plenty of room for your things
“Bar area” granite counter with ice bucket, glasses, coffee maker
Pretty quiet, didn’t hear anyone in rooms on either side, but occasionally heard squeaky door nearby
Lots of lamps (4), electrical outlets, 3 chairs (2 side chairs, one cushioned chair with ottoman)
Free continental breakfast: Cold cereal, small yogurts, mini bagels and other small pastries, bananas, juice, coffee
Check-in was quick and easy, but we hit it just right. When we walked by 15 minutes later there was a long line.
Wireless was slow (but easy to access)
Old-style tube TV in armoire
Only two bath towels, two hand towels, and two washcloths
Only two pillows on the king-sized bed
Old-style bedspread, and Vellux blanket (hate those; they always creep down and you can’t pull them back up)
Worst: Bottom sheet did not even reach the end of the mattress, much less cover the side and stay tucked in.
Some oddities: The only hotel I’ve ever stayed at where they specifically mentioned (verbally) to each guest checking in, “No drugs, including medical marijuana”. This was along with a longer list of other forbidden substances and activities that the desk clerk not only told us about, but also made us sign and initial in 6 places, various things we agreed not to do in the hotel.
Also the only hotel I can remember in probably 15 years that did NOT have me give a credit card number to hold the room. And when I asked for an email confirmation (to make sure they would honor the $69 rate they quoted over the phone) she said “We don’t do email.”
