After this hotel accepted my bid from Priceline, I then went to Trip Advisor to learn more about it. The reviews were very scary to the say the least. While this hotel was listed as a 2.5 stars, it was being run as a 1 star in 2011. I immediately called and talked with a front desk person to let him know what I read on Trip Advisor. He shared that they did a complete staff turnover in Nov. 2011 and had started renovation soon after. Most of it was completed by Jan 2012. That made me feel better and I followed up with an email stating my level of expectation for a 2.5 star hotel. Both by phone and through email, this hotel staff was very responsive. When we arrived at 11:30 pm, I was very appreciative of their well lighted parking lot. The lobby was very clean even though three bus loads of college students were there. Front desk person was ready for us. My wife is the final say on if a room is considered clean and she liked what she saw. Only due to the age of furnishings and decor, would I rate this hotel as a 2 vs. 2.5. But the key for our family is cleanliness, and we saw that in every aspect. Only a few comments that i am sure they are working on: 1. Upgrading the elevator, it felt a little shaky. 2. The TV was confusing when you turn it on. For the first 5 min. you see this TV Guide type listing and you can't do anything to it (up, down, remove it, etc.) It just stays up there. As a business traveler, I was frustrated that I couldn't view the channels I wanted to see. 3. Breakfast staff was not prepared for the number of guests that stayed the night before. The items they offered for breakfast were plentiful, but they were at zero on most items by 8 am. The staff needs to plan better next time. For the price we paid through priceline, we felt we got our $$'s worth.
