Stayed here using a PriceLine deal. The place is rated 3-stars, pictures looked good. Should be ok, right? WRONG!!!
Plus side: Room was relatively clean. Bath was actually quite nice, although fixtures were well "broken in". A/C was in good order. WiFi was fast enough for NetFlix, which is my standard for rating hotel wireless systems. The place was relatively quiet. Bed was old but ok.
No shampoo available. Cleaning staff said they were "waiting on a shipment of shampoo". Ok. I always keep a spare, but, c'mon, Walmart has those little sample bottles by the 100's. If you run out, go buy some to get you through the day.
OLD CRT television. Lots of channels, but poor picture quality on a small Screen. Unacceptable for a 3-star room in 2014. Furniture has been around for a LONG time. Pretty beat up.
Lots of trash and accumulated leaves, papers around the rear of the building and parking lot. Hey, take an hour or so to clean up the place.
Now, get this: I go down for the "Free FULL Hot Breakfast" advertised on the website. Guess what? It consisted of one pan of grits, some shredded cheese, juice, bread and bagels to toast and coffee. No eggs or breakfast meat. They had a couple of sugary kids cereal dispensers loaded up, but the attendant said they unfortunately were out of milk for the cereal, so no go on that. When I mentioned this to the front desk, they just laughed and said that they had had a family reunion over the weekend and they had "wiped them out". Well, y'know, just run down to the 7-11 and buy a couple of gallons of milk. The supermarket has plenty of eggs and bacon. This is a three star hotel supposedly.
So... Here's the deal: This place does not rate even a 2-star level. I would not recommend this for anyone who is accustomed to typical hotel of this rating. It just is not in the game.
