Sound asleep at 1:00AM, a staff member came into my room and turned on the lights! After my disoriented scream, he realized he was in the wrong room and left. Should I have chain locked the door? Yes I should have, but still, that is not acceptable. When I addressed this incident to the hotel supervisor the next morning, she was less than apologetic and offered up zero ways to make it right. Needless to say, I was very upset. Then later that day, I noticed the safe in my room was broke. Then I noticed a plastic bag wrapped around the smoke detector in my room. A sure fire hazard, probably antics of the persons who stayed in that room before me. There is no continental breakfast, and the little Java Cafe offers few food choices before closing at 2pm on weekdays and noon on weekends. The restaurant was absolutely dead all seven nights I stayed there. It was kind of like a ghost hotel. Not many people around. This hotel is not directly on the Riverwalk. You have to walk a block and cross the street to get to it. Once you are on it, it is a 10-15 minute walk to get to the first restaurant you see. The bathroom in the hotel room was tiny, I could barely close the door since it almost hit the toilet while shutting. I will not be coming back to this hotel! One of the worst hotel experiences of my life and I have traveled a lot. One thing I will say is that their housekeeping and maintenance workers were very polite and helpful and the bed in my room was super comfortable.
