Stay at your own risk!!! Upon check in, drove around hotel to parking area, mid-afternoon. Two cars had just had their windows broken out. That same night someone tried to enter my vehicle 3 times. The hotel has a night security person who is a little slow to arrive at alarms going off at 3:30 am. Cameras only on front of hotel, park in front of the lobby is only way to have some protection of your vehicle. 7-11 in front of hotel collects alot of people who push their shopping carts thru the hotel parking area. Non guests use the drive ways as a short cut to other areas, generally at high speeds. Lots of people walk thru the hotel parking areas at all times of day and night. If you are a business traveler be CAREFUL.
Now the hotel.(5 night stay)
We had 2 doubles in the room. One had a 2 inch drop in the middle of the bed, the other a 3 inch drop. Their new bedding package has nice sheets that are pulled tight, like a trampoline, that hides the awful matress on the beds. The halls and rooms smell. Rust on shower head, and hand hold was coming out of the wall. Double shower head was nice. Broken out lamp shade over table area was a nice touch of the new management company. Coffee pot was never cleaned, coffee not replaced, nor was the ice bucket cleaned and a new bag left. Several days did not replace towels. Window did not close properly, that's important in this neighborhood. Lots of college teams stay here, creates a food shortage at breakfast. Asked front desk if they were ever going to clean up the broken glass from the break ins in the parking lot after 4 days, Someone ran out and did it at 9 pm.
