so it all starts with the check in, multiple fumbling about, poorly greeted, no assistance whatsoever with luggage, 'where can u park the car' - answer, lol on the street.! and it was downhill from here, arriving to the room, there is massive jackhammering going on, after a six hour drive, all we need to do is rest, but not at this hotel, when questioning the front desk, they advise that the noise will stop at 5pm, what time will it start again tomorrow i asked, 730 was the response, when queried, 'dont u think that is unreasonable,' all i got was a shrug, when talking to the manager, he was somewhat apologetic, giving us a dinner i. the restaurant, that was interesting too, disorganized, the girl in the restaurant, has a name tag saying supervisor, but then when we asked something she said tht she is still learning, 'so why does your name tag say supervisor' a valid question i thought, lol, to be told, 'i have been here a week' and now you are the supervisor i said, lol, she didn't even know what day it was let alone be a supervisor, then there was breakfast, everything was of exceptionally poor quality, hash browns soggy, bacon, literally strips of fat, try to get some water for a tea, and only to find the container with water, had been used last time for coffee, so the water stunk to high heavens, asked for some water, and the waitress goes to get some in another container that also previously held coffee, when i explained her the ins and outs of how to serve water, she said its ok, so i said can we test it first in a blank cup, you guessed it mucky water came out and one highly embarrassed waitress. room housekeeping, we leave the room at 9am, put the sign on for cleaning, get back at 2.30pm, nothing, thinking about the pathetic level of the hotel i had to call someone to see if they did in fact do daily housekeeping, to be told that yes they do, we just forgot the eighth floor today, hahahaha, this is all true, i could go on, but yes this hotel is really a laugh a minute, do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.
