I needed to book a hotel for a week so I chose the Larkspur since the Orenco (my favorite) was not available. The lobby of the Larkspur is really nice and the front desk staff tries really hard to be attentive and helpful. Once you go to the room, you start to see the flaws that make me question why I was paying $100+ per night.
I was given room 128 but the signage to get to this part of the hotel was missing. Eventually I found it. The room was adjacent to an exit door outside which the smokers converged to satisfy their cravings. Their smoke drifted into the hallway (not heavy) and into 128. The room was noisy and the desk chair was worn to threads so I asked to be moved. I was given room 133.
This room was quiet and not near smokers, so that was good. Shortly after getting into the room, I noticed a water leak coming from the refrigerator as well as the bar sink faucet leaking into the sink. I reported it and was told it would be fixed the next day. No big deal, but why didn't housekeeping notice this? The next day, the maintenance guy fixed the refrigerator leak and tried to fix the sink but not completely. That's ok, I can deal with that.
On the second night, the wall-mounted heater/AC unit (you've seem them in many motels) came on as the temperature dipped outside and the room needed heat. Imagine waking up to an acrid, burnt-plastic smell that filled the room. No smoke but this smell that ended up coming out of the heater. I turned it off and opened the windows to get rid of the smell and eventually went back to sleep.
Otherwise, the room is ok. The bed is very comfortable and sleeping with those wonderful room-darkening shades is a treat. I didn't try the breakfast offered as part of the room rate.
Would I stay here again? yes, if I can get a discount.
