I stayed here with family members for a wedding. We were given a room on the second floor. This was inconvenient as they do not have an elevator and we had a hard time getting our luggage and cooler up the stairs. This was even worse for my elderly parents to navigate all weekend long. When another family member complained about my parent’s situation, the staff did offer to move them to the first floor room but they had already settled in and unpacked. I think the staff should have been proactive and realized the situation at check in.
They did not have a robe hook in the bathroom. I never knew how important this simple thing is until I stayed in this hotel without one. They do not double sheet their beds. If you have read any of my hotel reviews, you would know this is a big thing for me. You would also know that hotels with thin, un-insulated walls are totally unacceptable to me. The first night here was about the worst case I have ever experienced. The door that separated us from the adjoining room was so thin I could see the light from the next room and hear simple conversations from our neighbor. Even worse, the neighbor has the TV on all night long. It woke me up at 2am, 4am and 7am. This is the reason why I will never stay at this hotel again.
Good points about this hotel: plenty of easily accessible electrical outlets for charging phones and setting up the ironing board. The mini-frig was very convenient and welcomed in our room. They offered free internet service.
