The hotel is close to the airport and right off the highway so location is great. The hotel itself sits in the parking lot with a Fairmont Inn and right next door to a Holiday Inn Express so there is plenty of options to choose from. The rooms are very nicely decorated and have comfortable beds. However, there were a few issues that are minor but detract from the overall experience.
First, this is NOT a smoke free property. I stayed on the third floor and the hallway did smell like smoke. The room itself did not but the trip down the hall is not pleasant. When I entered the room the electical outlets along one wall did not work. That included the TV, microwave, fridge nd desk lamp. I called the front desk and they sent someone up. Apparently the breaker that controls several rooms frequently trips. So why not get it fixed?
The stopper in the bathroom sink has been disconnected from the pull and sat firmly in the bottom of the sink. I had to reach under the sink and manually raise it up. The drain in the shower was also stuck and when I tried to pull it up the handle came off in my hand. I was able to re-attach it but again, should not have happened.
I went down to the breakfast and had some oatmeal. I tried to add some brown sugar but it was the hardest brown sugar I had ever seen. I literally tried to break it up with the serving spoon but was unable to.
If it was not for the above mentioned issues this hotel could get a notch higher rating from me but with the price and the competition available I do think I could do better with a neighboring property.
