Other than the good price, I can not think of any reason why anyone should stay in this hotel.
At check-in there was a sign on the counter indicating that receptionist was down the hall. I went into the hall and there was no one, all the doors were closed and there was no one. I went back to to the counter and rang the bell. Still no one. Finally, five minutes later someone came to check me in.
The non-smoking room smelt like an ash-tray. The air conditioner did not work, the room was warm as it was 30 degrees Celsius outdoors. The TV was off-coloured to the red spectrum. The wall paper in the room was peeling. Cigarette butts littered the sidewalk of exterior access to the room. To get ice you need to find the receptionist as the ice machine is behind the front desk. I could go on...
The, so called, free breakfast was a joke! Serving from 7am to 9am (a small time-frame). Choice of white/brown bread. No spread was available. Fig Newtons and those tiny powder topped dry donuts were the other edibles (if you can call them that). Orange juice and coffee were the drinkables.
Hanging above the breakfast serving table was a sign indicating that if you want seconds or have a guest, a charge of $4.95 will be added to your room bill. I standing there thinking to myself that this breakfast isn't even worth $0.50 - who in there right mind is going to pay $4.95?
I would avoid this place, drive in either direction along Brookdale and find something else.
