Traveled through from Florida and used hotel as a one night layover. During check in the staff appeared to be "locked" in their office and talk to you through a tiny hole in window. Looked around and wondered what kind of friendly service this could be. Staff not very polite and didnt appear friendly or welcoming. Got to room noticed that fixtures in ceiling in bathroom were not complete , looking unfinished and not appealing. Did not have enough towels for all of us to shower so called down to office to ask if they could send some down for us. Phone didnt work well , could not hear on it. When contacted staff member finally, he said he would not bring them down and that we had to come down to get them. Not very accommodating since we were traveling with children too. Fire alarm hanging out of ceiling, during night batteries started to chirp therefore we again called front desk to ask for new batteries. Front desk staff acted irritated and said " Just take batteries out". Seriously? Not even to run down to our room with fresh batteries? Nope. So we spent the night with no batteries in alarm. Pulled sheets down on bed to find that they had stains on them as well as top comforter. This tells me they don't wash their comforters and/or blankets in between travelers. Ugh. This room was not worth the money we paid. Would never return again, very poor service and not welcoming attitudes along with dirty bedding and fixtures that need to be completed.
