In all my travels, this "Hotel" achieves the award for being the worst. While the Hotel may present nicely from the "outside" the "inside" leaves a lot to be desired. The room I stayed in - 505 - was as filthy as it was outdated. The carpet was dirty, and there was a red stain (paint, blood, wine?) by the sofa which looked as if it was recently acquired from a garage sale. There were also parts of the carpet which were "sticky" (and I'm not even hazarding a guess as to what that was!) The room had a moldy smell to it, and whenever the AC unit switched between on/off, it made a loud clanking noise. The sheets on the bed which, I presume, were once white must now be so old because they have a "greyish" hue to them. The comforter - or duvet - had embedded sweat stains at the top - leading me to wonder if it was ever cleaned. The room, overall, just looked dirty and in no way was conducive to getting a good night's rest or dispensing with thoughts about why I suddenly felt itchy after getting in bed. I just wanted to get out, and actually left a day early to do so.
Rooms had wireless internet, but connection was constantly dropping. The ample parking was a a plus - perhaps I should have slept in my car.
To be fair, the hotel staff was pleasant and accomodating, but that might just be because they were taking pity on the guests. I don't know...
Should I ever need to stay in this area again, rest assured, I'll be staying at the Marriott Courtyard around the corner.
