This is the first time I am staying in a Sleep Inn – so I was not sure what to expect. The location is either great or horrible depending on your point of view – just off the highway and very convenient – but nothing really around.
Checking in was a surreal experience. The greeting as I was entering in was very cold and unwelcoming. I could almost swear it was in the line of “what do you want?” but I don’t remember the exact wording. The attitude lifted a little as the receptionist discovered I had a reservation. She was too busy talking with what I assume is another employee (although he was out of uniform) complaining about being oversold. Things went south from there – I asked where are the elevators and was basically scolded that ”we don’t have an elevator and we use the stairs just over there” in a very condescending tone. Oh well, just saying we don’t have elevators would have been enough. My ChoiceRewards status (which means nothing I know) was not acknowledged.
I am ambivalent about the room. While the sleeping/working are was adequate size and functional, the bathroom was tiny. So tiny that it was smaller than my smallest closet I have at home. It only hold a shower and a toilet and that is that. The sink is outside the bathroom in the room. The room lacks any closets. The pillows were the softest I have had which was not conducive for good sleeping.
Breakfast was basically below average, even when considering the level of the hotel. Not much offering, nothing fresh and all seems to be coming from a bag in one form or another.
Checkout was much better than check-in. The receptionist (a different one) was courteous and pleasant to deal with.
With so many options in the area, I would probably not be back to this establishment despite the price difference.
