I reserved online, then called the hotel to ensure that I was getting a king sized bed on the first floor as requested. I was told that there were no king rooms available on the first floor (I had had knee surgery and could not climb the steps at home, so came to a hotel with first floor rooms). There isn't an elevator. Once I explained that I could not climb stairs I was told that there was one room on the first floor, and that it was handicapped accessible.
The room was excessively hot. The furniture was run down, and there was a burn hole in the bed spread. The bed spread smelled like it had not been laundered for quite some time. The bathroom was clean, with the exception of the shower stall and fold down chair in the stall. (The chair is for someone who needs to transfer from a wheelchair to the shower.) The shower stall and chair needed a good scrubbing! I also found several pieces of what appeared to be pet food on the floor. I'm guessing someone snuck a pet into the room at one point.
I called the front desk to explain that I was not happy with the room, and was told I'd get a call back in five minutes. I waited ten minutes, and called the front desk back. I was told that there were no other rooms with king sized beds available. I would not take no for an answer, and a room suddenly became available,
The only complaints I have about the second room is that there were burn holes in the sheets and blanket, and the furniture was a bit run down.
