Was on a business trip and booked into this place. I'm not one who expect extravangent features from a hotel, but I do have some basic expectations. The place must be clean, the furnishings should be reasonably new, the staff responsive and knowledgable, and above all I must feel safe.
Well, this place is "well worn". It looks like they are attempting to update their rooms, but are really having limited success. From the outside, it appears run down and once inside, your opinion won't change. The furniture in the lobby is dated and worn and the elevator in the main lobby is non-operational (and looking back at other posts, has been for quite some time). To working elevator showed the obvious "quick fixes" of a branding change (with duct tape over an old Holiday Inn logo). The initial room I was given, looked to be recently updated with a flatscreen TV, but the lockset on the door wasn't installed properly and I was able to demonstrate to some coworkers the ability to do the old "credit card unlock" trick -- and I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination. I quickly requested a new room -- a process which seemed to annoy the front desk person. The new room had date furniture and an old TV but was reasonably clean. I few dust bunnies and some dead stink bugs leave me questioning however how closely they keep after things.
Breakfast was reasonable and included in the price.
Would I stay here again? No. If there were absolutely no other places to stay in the area and I need a spot for the night -- sure -- but that's about it.
