It has been awhile since we have stayed here, and I was surprised by how run down it is. It is on the river in a great location, surrounded by wonderful mature trees, and it is a shame that the interior was deteriorated so much. I was torn between giving it a 2 or a 3. It wasn't horrible, so I gave it a 3. The bed was very comfortable and clean. However, not much else was very clean. I don't usually complain about the condition of the carpet or tiles, but the carpet was very worn and fraying, not only in our room, but also in the hallways. The tiles were cracked in a lot of places. It is close to the airport, and the room we stayed in had a sliding glass door, which leaked air, and was very noisy in the morning when the airplanes started taking off. I think the thing that grossed me out the most, was when I made a pot of coffee in the room, and picked up the 2 mugs to pour coffee, and both of the mugs had coffee drips running down both the outside, and remnants of coffee inside the cup. Obviously nobody had washed the mugs, but had just put them upside down on the paper coaster like they were clean. Yuck! We ate at the hotel, and I had NY Steak which was good, but the potatoes were burned, and my husband had 3 cheese ravioli which was not cooked enough and very tough and chewy and cold. Pretty gross. Needless to say, we won't be staying here again.
