I stayed on points so essentially got the hotel for free over memorial day night.
At first blush the room smelled like a dirty mop head...but that smell dissipated over the night.
And the east entrance sort of smelled strange, it could be that the wind was coming out of the east and I was smelling od de dumpster from the chicken wing joint...but the smell also was in the parking lot of the aisian buffet joint about 1/4 east so.....it could just be a smell local to defiance.
The smell was not there the next morning in the rain.
The bed was comfy, but my toes all hurt in the morning , not sure if the sheets were too tight or the MSG from the chinese food caused that.
The staff was friendly gave me a bag of chips for being a priority club member and breakfast consisted of the normal dried out scrambled eggs, paper thin bacon , no yogurt by 8 and a nifty little pancake maker..that squishes all the fluffy ness out of the pancake... they should just increase the liquid in the batter sqeeze it a bit more and go upscale and call em fat crepes or Express crepes.... the pancakes werent very good , they were hot though.
I stole two bananas .
Check out and check in went fine, would I stay again ? yes.
