I was in town and i decided to stay here with my girlfriend
We got the room with a queen size bed.$99
Ok on the plus side:
For starters, the room was clean.I wouldn’t say it was very clean though. Bathroom, sink and Toilet were all spotless he bed was comfortable with nice clean sheets. No springs, with decent firmness. The TV was standard CRT screen, but still pretty good. The room contained semi modern furniture/design( Cherry wood end tables, bed backboard, desk
etc ).It looked nice.Room has a nice clean chair. The air conditioner worked well. Bathroom fixtures worked with no leaks or tightness. Contained a pleasant smelling
shampoo. Room accepts AAA discount. has Free Wi-Fi access.
Ok.On the downside:
Although the room was clean it was quite small.( less than 2/3s the size of the average hotel room) as was the bathroom.They were VERY stingy and paranoid with the towels. I like to use alot..When we checked in,I asked for a few extra towels
The lady behind the desk said "sure" .She goes into a room near the front desk where you can see a MOUNTAIN of towels sitting there on shelves.When she came out . She said in a VERY patronizing and serious tone "I can give you TWO towels..."My girlfriend and I just looked at each other..She should have asked us "Is TWO okay"She didnt.
Although the bed and sheets were clean, the comforter looked very thin and cheap looking .The room had no DVD player or microwave. The ice bucket was a VERY CHEAP paper thin plastic kind( gee guys ever heard of metal?).Despite having 4 lights plus the sink/bathroom area lighting. the room was poorly lit. Although the shampoo was nice, there was no conditioner bottles there( and my girlfriend needed it( as most women do)The shower water pressure wasn’t very good.
We brought a laptop to try to use the internet while staying there- But it required a login...They never said it needed a username and password. I tried to call the lobby. No dial tone on the phone. the phone wire was hanging halk plugged in in wall jack. when i reconnected it. the phone acted funny . It had a semi dial tone.Tried to call front desk. 4 times. Each time they couldn’t hear me we kept saying to each other
"Hello?!” The phone seemed to be broken. So I had to get all my clothes back on and go back to the front desk to ask about the Wi-Fi, WHen i got to the front desk, she explained The username + password were on paper key covers, I was saying to myself” what the heck? Does anyone ever look at those things? How could we have guessed it would be there???- Why didn’t they mention it during check in like everyone else does???"
I standing there also asked for 2 more towels a different woman said "ok". When she came out of the closet room she asked me what room I was in...When I told her the room... she said "Ok let me write that down.....”. Apparently they keep track of every single cheap dollar store towel they give you! So stingy and cheap!Afraid of getting it stolen or something???
I give it 3 stars ONLY because the room was clean with a pretty good bed -- but i am being generous.
The way the phone didnt work, plus the stinginess with towels and not informing us at the front desk about the username and password for the Wi-Fi kinda ruined it.
Still I might stay there one day-As long as I don’t expect too much.
Recommended if you want only a fairly cheap and clean room with a good bed ONLY.
Not recommended for some place with reliable technology and good service or need a pretty good shower experience, or if you are claustrophobic.
Its a coin toss. its a good thing this room was relatively cheap for weekend rates...I stayed at a hotel in Philly for 50 dollars extra and got way better service, amenities ( including a fridge,conditioner, bigger bed, a bigger bath, a WAY bigger room. and they weren’t cheap with the towels like the Days Inn was ( they delivered exactly how many we needed to the room when we called up and asked for more) and ...they had everything working!
