OK. I want to rate this hotel very highly. I really do. The staff at the desk were so nice, but I have a very strong aversion to uncleanliness so I have to be honest with you other Trip Advisors.
Here's the deal. We checked in and I did my normal once-over for bed bugs, which includes pulling up the fitted sheets and mattress pads to make sure there are no signs of bugs hiding in the mattress. Paranoid? Sure. But I would rather be safe than sorry. So as I pulled up the sheets on my bed, I noticed a small brown spot on the mattress, but when I lifted up the sheet entirely, the spot covered almost the whole mattress. Right in the zone where someone might've peed. YUCK. And the stain was also on the mattress pad. (I bet this is making you want to start checking these things, isn't it?)
So we asked to change rooms. The staff was super apologetic and got us into a new room immediately with no push-back at all. I checked this room, and there was another stain on the mattress! Not as big this time, and this one was not on the mattress cover, so my husband decided that he would sleep on that side of the bed and we would stay in that room. I'm guessing that these stains might be coming from other pets? Or people having accidents in bed? There wasn't an obvious smell to the stains, though I didn't get up close and personal, so I'm assuming they've been cleaned in some form or another. With the mattress pad covering it, we survived, but I would highly recommend that you check the mattress and mattress pad in any of these rooms. Just to be safe.
Otherwise, the room was comfortable, the area felt safe, and we were able to walk along the river to a yummy pub nearby. Someone at the desk drew us a map and everything. So like I said, excellent service, but always check your mattress!
