I booked this hotel through Hotwire for a great price of $39 a night. I think it was money well spent and was a bargain at that. After booking through hotwire I immediately emailed the hotel asking for a non-smoking, 2 bed room. When checking in I confirmed it and was told that indeed, they had a note in the computer regarding my request and it was no problem.
I was quite happy with the quality of the room, the bedding, the bathroom and the heat. It was nice to actually have a window that opened for fresh air as well. We had nothing but great service from the desk and the maintance crew when we couldn't get our microwave to work. --user error on our part but they came right up at 10 PM when we called it in. Very professional. I also like that the hotel had washers and dryers.
We also used the shuttle service for airport pickup, shopping at MOA and back to the airport to pickup a rental card. All trips were handled graciously. Please be aware though that you need to notify the staff when you wish to use it. It can get booked full.
My only negative was the funky smell in the halls after people had microwaved food. The halls need better ventilation. We did not use the pool and they were in the process of cleaning it while we were there.
We ate at the Green Mill for breakfast and it was good and we also had the Easter Sunday brunch, which was actually very nice. The restaurant manager was especially accomodating as we had no reservation and they were fully booked.
Remember folks, this is not a 3* or 4* hotel. Yes it's old and yes it's seen better days. But, If you are looking for a good bargain price hotel with good service and decent rooms then this is a good choice. I would stay there again if I could priceline it or use hotwire for a discounted rate. Please see my photos.
