When I say that, I mean "ol'" and not "old" as we have been staying there once or twice a year since the college searching began in earnest back in '10, and we have seen a steady improvement each time, from the evolution of the breakfast area, to the security of the outer doors away from the front desk - these people really listen and act when things are brought to their attention. One last example: just last month we visited while bringing our IC student back to campus, and when we walked in the room, the unmistakeable aroma of stale cigarettes assaulted our lungs. So I propped the door open using my suitcase, turned on the ever-present ceiling fan, and opened the windows and very quickly the breeze took away the offending odor. At that same moment, one of the staff was walking down the hallway, and although I didn't say anything to him, moments later the room phone rang and it was the front desk asking if everything was okay. As we began to explain, a room change was offered, and although we declined, it made us feel better that we paid a little more. And yes, I do troll the discount websites to se if we can catch this one occasionally.
