They advised they would send maintenance. About an hour later the front desk called back to confirm the specific problem and advised they would...

The hotel elevator is the worst one that I've ever been on. Slower than molasses. Ice machines didnt work on all floors. Breakfast buffet was included. It was really good. It pool and hot tub was nice. The hotel had a general air of being a bit rundown and seedy. It seems like some people actually live there full time....
