I recently spent one night at this hotel for work. This was the recommended hotel for our meeting. This is most definitely my last stay at a Shilo.
We started the evening by not having my reservation. But they found me a room anyway. Unfortunately it was conveniently located to hear all of the noise from the lobby and pool. Good thing I have a white noise app on my phone. I wish they had been too full to accommodate me.
And now the room.........the furniture is outdated, the televisions are straight from the 80s, the cabinetry, etc. is that putrid shade of pink that was so popular in the 80s, and the bed had a bedspread that was older than the hills. I was afraid to touch it, much less sleep with it.
And the smell. I don't know what kind of cleaner the Shilo Inns use that smells so bad, but they all smell like a cheap nursing home. And it's not a faint odor - oh no - it's a headache and nausea inducing overpowering olfactory assault. I am goin to spend weeks trying to get that smell out of my luggage.
On the plus side:
The rooms are large and the rate was low. But for less than $20 more I could stay at the Fairfield and not suffer the odor or ancient decor. That would have been money well spent.
Front desk staff was friendly and efficient, if unprofessionally attired.
Breakfast was adequate and the coffee service very good.
But none of these are enough to convince me to give any of the Shilo Inns another shot.
