We made our reservations through “Name your Own Price” on Priceline. With this, you will need to call the hotel to be sure you have the room type you desire (king, double beds, etc.) I called right after I made the reservation to specifically reserve a King, Non-smoking, the gentlemen at the desk updated my room type. I called the next day to let them know that we would be arriving late in the evening, they said no problem and stated that they had us down for a King, Smoking. I was quick to correct them that we needed a non-smoking room. I simply thought that perhaps the first staff member forgot to save the updates from my first call…..until, we arrived there. And as I was signing the paperwork, I saw that AGAIN we were slated for a smoking room. After I explained the situation and my calling repeatedly, they were able to find us a Non-smoking, Double bed, handicap accessible room…whew! Double beds I can deal with, but smoke smells I can not. There is obviously some type of problem with their reservation system.
Other than that, the rooms and bathrooms were nicely decorated and updated and clean. We have a super comfy bed at home, so for us the beds and pillows were not the most comfortable, but still decent.
All in all, I would stay here again, but this time I would ask for them to send me email confirmation of my room type :-) So, when you reserve, be sure to double and triple check your room type if that is important to you…
