This property is at least 30-40 years old and shows every year of it. Formerly a Holiday Inn, It’s location is somewhat secluded off a side street. Typically I stay exclusively at a different lodging chain but was booked here for two nights due to a company meeting- and checked out after one. The structure is a two floor U-shaped old style motel. No elevators! So if you’re on the second floor, you must haul your luggage up stairs. You’re a bit fooled when you enter because the lobby is somewhat attractive, you’re greeted by a grand piano and a small lobby bar. The rooms though are another story. My colleagues room smelt of cigarette smoke, mine had a musty odor. My room had old carpet, outdated furniture, old wallpaper, old TV (no LCD panel) and a fridge that didn’t close properly. The ironing board had what looked like candy smudged on it. Unfortunately I also found a nice hairball on the carpet. The desk had a table lamp bolted to the table. Breakfast was weak- sugary cereal, waffles, yogurt and pastries. They had juice/milk but it was warm- no one thought to perhaps sit them in a tub of ice for serving. Daytime staff was friendly, the night clerk however was not accommodating to a simple request i had and did not speak English adequately. They have one solitary computer in the lobby and you have to stand to use it- some of the keyboard keys are worn off. Room internet speed was good. They do have a restaurant (Japanese) but apparently you can’t charge to your room, which is quite inconvenient. Decent sized outdoor pool. At one time, I bet this was an attractive property, now it either needs a major renovation or to be totally razed.
Bottom line- this is a poor choice for the business traveler- I just did not feel comfortable. For the leisure traveler, it might be somewhat acceptable if price is your major consideration.
