It was old and dated however for the price can't really complain about that. Our windows rattled every time a door in the hotel closed. There was road noise and audible music and banging of doors throughout the night. We barely slept. When I brought it to the attention of the check-in staff, he said "Oh sorry, you were booked in a room directly above a noisy rock band. Have you ever heard of The Swollen Members? Anyhow, they are notorious for getting kicked out of hotel's but it looks like last they made it through the night by your account. It's an old hotel, that's why the windows rattle and the road noise is out of our control. Here's your receipt, please come again" I told him that he could count on the fact that I would not be back. They put us in that room knowing full well we wouldn't likely get much rest, and no restitution was even offered for our inconvenience. Won't be back and not sure I would even try another HJ hotel after experiencing that kind of service.
