We stayed here for a weekend. We had booked a smoking room, but even though I'm a smoker, I thought the overwhelming smoke smell on the whole 4th floor was horrendous. We left the room door open a bit since you can't open the window at all, and the smell did dissipate somewhat.
The room looked very clean and neat, and everything worked fine........except the toilet. The first time toilet paper was put into it, it clogged. It didn't flush all night, but we just figured we'd tell someone about it in the morning, since we were distracted........by ants! We got some potato chip crumbs on the floor, and in minutes they were swarmed by ants. There were suddenly ants on the nightstand, ants on the dresser, ants on the tv, ants all over the room.
The next morning, my husband told the front desk clerk about the ants, and the clogged toilet. She had no comment at all.
Before we went out for the day, I had left a note for housekeeping to vacuum well, due to the ants in the room, and I had also left a note that the toilet was plugged.
Upon our return, we found the room to be very clean and ant free. The toilet had been unplugged, and cleaned, so everything looked great. Until I used the bathroom and tried to flush. Plugged.
Oh well, it was our last night there, so we just left it and went to bed. Upon waking, there was a drip of juice on the nightstand. Covered in ants. This time there were more ants than the previous night.
We filled in the comment card, and told the desk clerk about the toilet and the ants again, and got the very same reaction. We now intend to contact the manager of the facility.
On the other hand, the free breakfast was phenomenal, with make-your-own waffles, french toast, fruit, muffins, bagels, juice, hard boiled eggs, coffee, danish, etc. Probably the best continental breakfast we have encountered in a hotel.
The hotel was not terrible, it just seemed that the staff was very unconcerned about the satisfaction of the guests. The pool was small and only 5 feet deep at the deepest, but that's ok if you have kids. It was nice and clean. The rates were definitely doable if you're on a budget, and there are plenty of places nearby to get food. I think we'd stay here again, we would just be more diligent about getting results if we encountered ants and a clogged toilet again.
