I decided to give this hotel a try while attending an event at UNK because my children had stayed here several times with school groups attending functions at UNK.
As platinum priority club members we were disappointed that we did not receive any perks at check-in. No goodie bag, free drink, meal discount, or free breakfast. Nothing.
The only good point was that our room appeared to have been recently renovated. Everything looked nice and room was fairly spacious. There was a nice, big flat screen TV and DVD player, micro, and ref.
However, the bathroom was rather small. With the floorplan it could have been easily enlarged during renovation or an outside sink added.
The clock didn't work and the heater was an ordeal. Heater was pretty loud and kept kicking in and out every few minutes. We decided to turn it off when we went to bed because it was so noisy. I'm sorry, I thought OFF meant OFF. Apparently not here. Off means it kicks in and out every 2 minutes with the A/C blasting out for 30 sec. All night long. By morning we were freezing and sleep deprived. The beds were VERY uncomfortable. All of us had sore backs in the morning. My husband could barely get up. While there was a large selection of pillows, they were all quite small, more like couch pillows than bed pillows.
Our toilet clogged and it took maintenance a long time to come and fix it. The maid also did not leave any tissues in the room.
The next time we need to stay in town we will try one of the many other hotels.
