The condition of the hotel was not bad except it didn't have an elevator and it was right in front of a bar which was noisy late into the night. It was clean and looked decent. However, the receptionist on the overnight was very rude. We showed up around midnight and had booked our room and paid for it online. He gave me a really hard time and the check in process was much more complicated then the previous 3 hotels we had stayed at on this trip (which were all booked the exact same way). He took his time checking us in, and he had heard us say that we had been driving for the last 8 hrs and were leaving very early to drive 8 more hours. We had told him that we were leaving very early so he made a point to tell us that breakfast was at 6 am. We were up and out to the lobby by 6:05 am because we had a long drive. We went to the breakfast room and the door was locked, the same receptionist was still there and he told us that breakfast was not open yet. He made no effort to come to the room even though it should have opened 5 minutes prior. When he checked us out he was not pleasant and even made a rude comment about us paying someone else since we had booked online. And when we were done with check out he still did not open breakfast so we had to leave and buy our breakfast somewhere else. Hopefully the front desk people on days and in the early evening are nicer. If you go to this hotel don't do it in the late night/early morning because the man at the front desk gave us the worst service we have ever had in any hotel. We would never go back here again because of this one man. The hotel itself wasn't bad at all so it is a shame that he had to ruin the experience.
