Yes, the place is dated. I can live with that. It's an original HoJo, but I have been to some well kept ones where you can tell the owner takes pride in their property.
It's all the small issues that add up and most of them are easily repairable/fixable. First, cleanliness was OK in the room, but dust visible in the corners and along the baseboard. Secondly, the mattress was like sleeping in a bowl. The middle of the mattress was depressed in the middle, I just kind of rolled down into the valley and had to climb out. Third, Hair along the baseboard and on the tub in the bathroom. The towels and sheets are worn with threads coming off. The anti-slip mat in the tub just collected dirt around the edges and you can see the dirt come off when water is run over it.
Lastly, I have a gripe with tubs that don't drain properly in hotels. Does anyone NOT notice this when supposedly cleaning the bathroom or do they not clean the tub/shower at all??? There's a Lowe's next door- invest in a snake and some Drano maybe.
The hot/cold directions on the tub was reversed. Took me a minute to figure this out when the water wasn't getting hot after turning the knob all the way to 'hot'. This can burn some one if they aren't paying attention.
I never felt unsafe around the property and didn't observe any doors being left open. It is literally right off the Thruway, so of course anyone can come and go easily, but that's any hotel in the area. They do require and swipe a credit card at check-in, so this probably keeps the undesirables planning on anything illegal away.
