Booked a jacuzzi room for the night of 12 August 2012. Bright pictures on the website looked promising. Reality: Carpet had red stains splotched from the bedroom to the hallway towards the door. All my guest and I could do is laugh it off and wonder who was killed in the room. We knew it COULDN'T be blood, but it sure did look somewhat like a murder scene.
The jacuzzi wasn't clean. That really was a disappointment. My friend and I spend more for a jacuzzi for because we enjoy that. The soap scum that floated around certainly did nothing for the mood.
The furnishings were okay, but it does appear that they are showing fair amounts of wear. It seemed that there would be good use for furniture polish here. Also, the bedspreads were very dated and there probably isn't a lot of life left in the mattress. Especially now.
The "kickbacks" downstairs were okay for the most part. What you should expect is hotdogs, nachos, and dry chicken fingers. The real disappointment were the drinks. True, the best drinks are free, but don't take a date here. it was a no frills kind of affair.
I had never stayed at a Drury Inn before. Overall, this was an average stay at what seemed to be an average hotel. It was nothing to rave.
