“Disappointing Stay”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Minutes after arriving in my room, I found non-working outlets, broken bathroom fixtures (towel rack, etc.), and a broken refrigerator knob (temperature setting). I requested another room and they moved me upstairs. The next room had lamps with torn lamp shades, non-working outlets, gnats and mosquitos in the bathroom, stained towels, and a coffee maker that leaked. I was surprised how little the front desk staff knew about local businesses and directions. The housekeeping staff kept piles of dirty linens in the hallway overnight. The guest laundry room was dirty, with trash and dirty clothes laying around. The guest drying machine did not work and there was no sign telling us so. The room reeked over tobacco smoke, which was absorbed by my clothes. The hallways smelled like smoke, too. The only benefit of this hotel was the location, as it was walking distance to local attractions.

Room Tip: Inspect the room, before accepting it. It may have broken outlets and appliances like mine did.
