The hotel was okay. Rooms were clean, bathrooms seemed clean but needed a lot of renovation done. The room numbers were a piece of paper taped to the door. I give it a 3 because the room was clean and staff were friendly but it is in need of much renovation throughout the hotel!

The hotel condition was horrible. The middle elevator was hardly working. I had to squeeze through the doors to get out. The halls smelled. The toilet had a rust stain on the bottom that looked like blood. The TV screen looked like someone spit on it and it dripped down. TV had a high ring/buzz when on. The exercise room did not have any tv remotes out; the eliptical machine display was broken; the exit button was broken and no indicator that it was the exit button. No pressure in room shower head; room coffee maker was missing parts and inoperable; the room door stuck and at times would not open.

We went to this hotel with a group, so we did not make the choice. It was chosen for it's proximity to the Straz. It is in a great location and is easy to get to from the interstate. Hotel staff was super friendly and accommodating.

There were no surprises regarding what to expect. It appears that we had a standard stay. Bugs, noise, disrepair.

If you are looking for 2½ stars with a good location this place will do.
