I gave this hotel the benefit of the doubt after some negative reviews months ago when we booked but unfortunately was let down. I didn't expect too much for $80 a night for two adults and a teen but I did expect clean. The room was old and falling to bits and it is the first hotel I have ever stayed at across the world where the pull out sofa wasn't pulled out and made up ready. Once we pulled it out ourselves there were sheets on it but we had to search for pillows and blankets.
We left our room to eat and when we came back the door wouldn't open. The security latch had somehow closed itself. One of the room cleaners was in the hall and was determined someone was in there and wouldn't help. In the end I had to walk to the front desk to get someone from maintenance to break into our room.
In the bathroom the bath and sink were revolting. They were dirty and stained. I felt far from clean after showering. One of the towels hanging was yellowed and dirty. Luckily there were others. I got up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet and when I turned the bathroom light on three small cockroaches ran across the floor near my feet.
Breakfast was the worst we had over our five week USA trip. There was a sparse range of bread and bagels. I overlooked this when I saw the waffle machine but unfortunately the syrup tasted terrible. Pretty sure it was a generic maple flavoured syrup.
There were some positives which is the only reason not for a 1/5. There are several eating options within walking distance (variety of fast food), the front desk staff were extremely helpful and even responded to my booking request for a quiet room at the back.
Unfortunately the few positives don't make up for the negatives.
