Brunswick, New York99 contributions29 helpful votes
The Pros here were a clean room, a very well-functioning, quiet air conditioning system and a powerful toilet that would never need a plunger. But...the room had the worst-smelling and bad-tasting tap water just about anywhere in the U.S. Front desk said the city has a chlorine problem. To me it smelled like mold. One of the four LED lights in the bathroom flickered more than occasionally (EVEN AFTER THE LIGHTSWITCH WAS TURNED OFF - but only for a few seconds). The bathtub shower was an odd 5-sided wedge shape that was awkward to move around in. I was told bag-and-go breakfast in the morning, but a tasty cold breakfast was served, with several good selections, even a hard-boiled egg. Maybe my saying something had struck a nerve?

State College has very bad tasting water. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do as a business to alleviate that. We do have ready to heat breakfast sandwiches available from our guest services agent upon request with a few signs indicating so. We hope to see you again so we can exceed your expectations.

The room was dirty. A used washcloth was left draped on the shower rod, and the toilet had other people's hair in the rim and on the seat. I was surprised by this lack of attention to basic hospitality details, as I've stayed at the hotel before. It's difficult to imagine this business surviving with so many other hotels in State College offering clean accommodatons.

Michael, I disappointed to hear we did not exceed your expectations. I will most definitely be speaking with my executive housekeeper about the issues you had in your bathroom. Since you stated you have stayed with us before, you know this is not the way we do business. We hope to see you again soon so we can exceed your expectations.

Walked into lobby to see a sign saying "Welcome Marsha" !! Staff is friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. Rooms are super clean! Beds, pillows & linens are great! What more could you ask for? Oh yes, WONDERFUL price! About half of some of the comparable places in the area.
