As an avid Drury Inn traveler, I wish I could state that this is the usual excellent Drury experience, but it wasn't. I arrived early and did not anticipate my room to be ready. It wasn't. However, I asked the staff to call when it was and they didn't. I called three hours later and that is when I was told it was ready. I stated that I didn't get a call, to which someone called back five minutes later and said that our room was ready! I guess to avoid a complaint being made! The hotel was not as clean as expected and looks outdated. It is large for a Drury. So, if your room is in the back, like ours, expect to walk a mile from the front of the lobby and dining area to the back. The room was not as comfortable and the bed seemed small for a queen bed. The area also seemed somewhat dimly lit.
The happy hour was nice but as usual, overcrowded and almost impossible to get more than drinks.The service was okay but nothing to rave about. The lines were long but good food offerings. The breakfast was plenty but again, too crowded to enjoy. Tip to Drury: Replace your styrofoam cups for real coffee mugs in the room. The coffee is not great and the cups make it taste even worse.
Overall, I would not be eager to stay at this Drury compared to the others I have stayed. Not impressed just so-so.
