I arrived at the hotel for check-in around 11:00 pm only to find out that the front desk closes nightly at 10:00 pm. Taped to the office door was an envelope with my name. I removed it and opened it up to find my room key and a sticky note with the room number on it. "Nice," I thought. Apparently, they're a lot more trusting than I am. The room was clean, but some of the light bulbs in the lamp were burnt out & there were nicks on some of the furniture. The bed didn't quite seem right to me, but I'm not sure what was "off" about it.
Once morning hit, I was awakened by a phone call from the front desk around 9:00. They wanted to make sure I found the room ok. That annoyed me for a couple of reasons. First, it woke me up. But, assuming I didn't find the room ok, checking in about it the next morning won't do a lot of good. I suppose on paper, it's a good idea to call the guests and make sure their "check-in process" went smoothly, but come on--in practice...
After I got up, I noticed light red colored stains and what appeared to be cigarette burns in the carpet not to mention some cereal that was under the bed. Outside of my room, it wasn't much better. The hallways are exterior, but there were still cigarette butts littering the ground and the paint job was in serious need of an update.
They advertise a pool and a hot tub, which I was thrilled about given it was August, but the pool was the smallest I have seen. Ever. Anywhere. I'm guessing a maximum of 4-5 adults could comfortably fit in the water at a time. The patio or whatever you want to call the area directly surrounding the pool was also very small, although I did see hotel staff out with a strainer and doing other work on the pool twice each day I was there. Perhaps that explains why the rest of the property doesn't look so hot...
The continental breakfast wasn't anything to write home about--muffins, dough nuts, cereal, milk, OJ, coffee, etc. Still nice to have something before leaving for the morning.
