$9 to park? It's the suburbs. I've never stayed in a hotel this far from a metropolitan area that charged for parking. Shameful. But that just added insult to injury. I continue...
$13 for WiFi? In 2014?
And the walls are paper thin. The teen sports teams in the surrounding rooms were loud all night, with no action from the front desk.
The shower took forever to get hot, and never really got past lukewarm.
The pool and locker room were poorly kept, with lots of standing water, and other people's hair lying around everywhere.
The complimentary apple cider in the lobby ran out after producing two sad drops in my son's cup. There wouldn't be any more, said the girl from the desk. It was only 5pm.
Later, we noticed a container of some previous guest’s chewing tobacco under the desk in our room.
And the alarm clock (that we didn’t set) went off at 5:30am.
And did I mention the toilet over-flowed?
All of these little things added up to an overall disappointing experience. We won't be returning, or recommending this hotel.
