“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Very nice and helpful staff. Very clean and quiet rooms. The mattress wasn't the softess i've slept on in a Holiday Inn Express, but it was okay. GREAT shower pressure!! Very good breakfast with good hot and cold food choices. Wish they had a treadmill, workout room.

Very good accommodations, wouldn't change a thing except I really needed a treadmill and if they have an exercise room, I couldn't find it. The breakfast is typical, but fresh and hot. I'll be staying here again on my next visit to the Harrison area.

Cons: no exercise equipment

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Property looks good both outside and inside. However, this property suffered from poor maintenance. If only one thing had gone bad, I would understand and sympathize. But too many things went south at this property, and I must attribute this to lack of preventative maintenance.

The air conditioner in our first room was 1 foot from the bed, and blowing directly across the side of the bed (who planned this room layout?). But worse, it was spitting mud onto the sheets. I presume that the condensation from the chiller was not draining through the weep hole because of mold growing and dirt accumulating in the unit. So that moldy muddy water would get blown into the air and land directly onto the sheets. Gross! We requested a new room.

We were upgraded to a slightly larger room in which the air conditioner was just beyond the foot of the bed. We didn’t have muddy debris coming from this unit (to our knowledge), but this air conditioner fan cycled on & off all night, even though we selected a fan on setting (controls must have been broken). One fan blade was misaligned and hitting on another piece of metal EVERY revolution, and it sounded like a playing card in bicycle spokes. We put up with this ALL night, but didn’t switch rooms a second time; it was too late for us…).

Additionally the laundry room washer ate our $1.25 without washing our clothes. Now the front desk DID refund our money, but…come on, get the washer fixed!. And there was mold in the bathtub (there is never an excuse for this…EVER).

The positives:
• Good breakfast (although crowded and not enough tables).
• Duvets on beds.
• Our upgraded room had a refrigerator and microwave, and a jetted tub (but I would not use a jetted tub in a hotel because someone else’s dirty bath water is still in the pipes and the pump!).

Would I return? No. I would spend the few extra bucks and stay in the Hampton next door.

Room Tip: Select a room at the Hampton Inn next door. I have found Hampton Inns to be pretty consistent.

We stay here when we go to Harrison because of the convieience and quality and we go there maybe once a month. They let you park the bike under the front entrance awning, have wipedown towels for you, and always greet you. The breakfast is excellent also and the cookies at night are good. You can't go wrong staying here.

We spent two nights here. The staff was friendly and competent. The front desk clerk was especially helpful when we checked in. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast was very good. The evening cookies were much appreciated.
