Another lengthy review but hopefully it will help with your decision making!
I chose this hotel because it offered indoor pool/spa, the free breakfast, and the location. For starters, I noticed a lot of the older reviews were complaints about management/staff etc, I never encountered any issues so I never had to ask for the manager and the girls out the check in counters were very pleasant. We were given a room down the hall on the 1st floor, everything in me said to ask for a top floor to avoid upstairs noise but I went with it anyways...too convenient to say no to 1 minute walk to the breakfast, pool and exit. The lobby offers all day lemonade and I would assume fruit punch kool-aid and maybe coffee. The ice vending machine along with the candy/soda machines. In the lobby they have a small table of places that offer discounts to eat next to the brochure rack. Our room was probably the smallest we ever stayed in, but was relatively clean and welcoming. One stain stuck out on the back of the desk chair and some mildew/mold stains on the shower ceiling and caulking. Corners of the bathroom grout could use a little more attention, but nothing major. The towels were nice and clean, and soft to boot! The shampoo and soap samples are harsh, bring your own if possible. Never tried the lotion. I noticed that the room is a joining room, they have the door locked and a chair in front of it. The big bulky t.v. sat on top of a fairly new modern piece of entertainment furntiure in front of an old mirror, they must have left it there to avoid repairing. They did place a nice long length mirror between the t.v. and mystery door. There was a small fridge hidden in this furniture piece, no freezer option at all. There was a block of ice forming at the back so we placed our freezing packets next to it, didn't do any good though. There was a desk with a 1 cup coffee maker, looked like they offer room service as my husband noticed the menu. The bathroom was small, light switch on the outside...which leaves you at the mercy of whomever thinks its funny to turn the light off when your on the toilet ;) Otherwise, the t.v. has some cable channels...doesn't matter to us if there is no HBO, your bound to find something on and if not, go do something else =) Most of my postings generally include the AC since this is a big deal breaker for me, if it's got enough complaints about how noisy it is...we're not staying. This was a very nice unit, very quiet...the only thing I pondered was...small room, AC set to 70 to sleep, still spent most of the night on top of the covers and hot?! The next night we started about 8pm and set it to 60, this made a difference to me...not my husband. We left it at 65 for the rest of the night, it was better than the night before but again, husband disagrees. The beds were nice, the bedding and pillows were soft and sufficient. Floors were not in a bad state at all. The only time we heard anyone was upstairs, knew this would happen but it was a gamble. Who knows if the people are just heavy footed or just thin floors. Whenever someone takes a shower the pipes making a knocking noise, so if your a light sleeper this will probably wake you up. On our last day we took showers about 10am and there was hardly any hot water, so take it early if you want a nice hot shower. Oh, my last gripe...again, no day curtains! It's either hello world or hello darkness! Moving onto breakfast, just to recap other postings...yes there is waffle making machines, takes about 3 minutes to get one cooked...so lines waiting for it moves relatively fast. While I waited, I ate cereal (raisin bran or plain cheerios was the choice). They had mini cinnamon raisin bagels, pastries and muffins right out of the box. Bread for toasting, Philly cream cheese, butters and jelly's. No peanut butter for the waffles =( but I brought my own just in case so all is =) again. Syrup on the tables, Minute Maid orange juice and apple juice along with coffee and milk for your beverage options. There were about 15 or so tables that people were coming and going, never had to wait for a seat. Stuff ran out all the time, the lady doing the breakfast shift was always going back and forth trying to keep up. The indoor pool/spa is nice because at night the weather drops quite a bit, and you don't have to swim through outdoor debris. The pool was very chilly though, I thought I read it was supposed to be heated but I tell you this now, its not! The spa is nice, we only got to use this one night as the 2nd night it was too crowded in both to do anything. The floor around the pool is dangerously wet so please use caution. There is a workout room in the same area, it's blocked off but it has glass viewing to and from the pool...never used it but saw there was a treadmill in there and some other equipment too. Lots of seating is available near and away from the pool. I believe the hours are 10am-10pm to use the facilities. They also offer pool towels so you don't have to use your own! Overall the hotel was very clean and up to expectations, just a bit more costly than we were looking for. Lucky Lane is almost entirely hotels and restaurants, closest walking distance is probably about 5-10 minutes. Walmart is right down at the end of the street, gas stations are very close by as well. Neighborhood is safe and clean, no problems. Trains are too far off to hear them by the way. Definitely recommended and would stay here again!
Booking direct offered the best deal.
