This is a former Holiday Inn that had a reputation for a deteriorated condition. The hotel rooms were completely refurbished some months ago. The ceiling of my room was a solid white, the wallpaper had a clean look and the rugs looked new. The furniture showed signs of use but had a clean look. The room had a safe and there is free wi-fi. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom sparkled. There is a coffee/tea maker. The TV was the old fashioned tube type but the reception was good. The rooms are spacious. No complaints about the maid service.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that it is already showing signs of a cheap refurbishing and poor maintenance. I observed that the doors to a number of rooms had the veneer snapped off in the lower corner, probably due to the continual open and slamming of the door. The outermost tiles at the front entrance to the hotel were smashed into jagged pieces probably due to cars running over the tiles. This is a safety hazard. In my room, the faucet in the bathroom was loose. The grouting around the bathtub had gaps which will eventually cause water to seep through. The chrome plate surrounding the button that flushes the toilet was cracked. There was a substantial tear (missing piece) of wallpaper in the far left corner of the room.
In summary, the hotel is already starting to show signs of deterioration.
As a plus to the staff, we arrived at the hotel at 9:30 in the morning and were informed the room was not ready but they would work on it. We were able to check in at 10:30.
I would certainly recommend the hotel for at least six months after this review, but after that, fresher reviews might demonstrate the hotel continues to deteriorate in appearance.
