After reading raving reviews for this hotel I tried my luck here and was gravely disappointed. The man at the reception was disorganized and indifferent when I was there. It took awhile for him finding a pen to sign and he wasn't helpful when I asked for a map. Maybe he was under stress or had an off day but I did not feel welcome by him.
The room itself on the upper level had alot of space. But it was an old room. It's clearly lower class despite having upgraded the counter in the bathroom. I didn't like the brown-beige and green wall color in the room very much.The walls are in dire of a new paintjob. I saw chinks, stains, scratches and even a chunkhole in the wall which decreases the rooms overall atmosphere. To prove my claims I hope you can see the photos clearly that I have uploaded here. Ceiling was peeling off in some spots making the place feel more run down as it is. TV is probably from the 90's. It's just very outdated and of terrible quality.
Breakfast was meager and uninviting. But I knew beforehand you can't expect much of a meal within this price category. You luckily have the Crabtree Mall within a minute drive. Sorry but I can not recommend staying here unless you really get a good deal and are not planning on staying more than a night. Do not be fooled by the "excellent" reviews.
