I made a reservation to stay here after being in the road for some time and intended to stay while I traveled and sought an apt in Murfreesboro.
I expressly asked for a smoking room, which I was told wasnt a problem. I was given a generic "unassigned" reservation and when I got here,...... Only a non smoking room was available.
Ok, so now I have to put on a coat and walk the stairs every time I wish to enjoy my cig.
Why the stairs? Well there is only one elevator here, and it has a wait time of about 3 mins.
Now,..... I have stayed at many hotels. "I travel ALOT" and my personal opinion is this is one of those places that puts up a great site, ropes you in, and then you realize for the same money you could have stayed in a suit somewhere with a hot breakfast and a pool.
Lets start with the room.
FIRST, its 500 feet from the interstate and i fell asleep to the lovely sounds of passing traffic.
Oh, I mean between the time I was awoken by the slamming of doors due to the paper walls in this place. Let me through in the smell of deep fried tube socks in the hallways here as well.
On the website you see a nice little room with a stove, sink, fridge & flat screen tv,
Thats all true, EXCEPT , its a nice little 19in tube tv. Not a high def flat like the site shows.
And you have a sink, but not one dish rag, not one dish towel, not an oz of dish soap.
They WILL SELL YOU SOME!
At least you get the things to clean yourself with right? NOPE!
Toilet Paper is $1.00 per role and soap is sold as well.
Want clean towels? Thats $7.00 per week.
Want your room cleaned? Well, if you buy the linen service you can change your own bed and retrieve clean sheets downstairs, other than that, cleaning is for sale as well.
At least you get an ironing board and iron right?
NOPE! Not a thing.
Well, I can do laundry downstairs right? SURE, except there is no coin changer for the machines, so unless your doing it during business hours. Its of to search for change!
Want a snack? There is one very overpriced machine downstairs that is full of stale crap.
And a can of coke, its $1.25. But make sure you have the $.25 cents because if you put your dollar in, it will not give it back!
Internet? At most hotels this is a given. Here, thats going to cost you $10 a week.
So lets see.
First, Im lied to about the smoking room!
Then Im lied to about the Flat screen!
Then I have to pay for all these little things that always come with a hotel room.
Soap and toilet paper = $5.00
So the sign says $187.00
after tax, and all the standard things. = $250 per week.
I should have spent $20 more and stayed in a suit somewhere and had a nice big room with a hot breakfast!
