After reading all the reviews concerning the bad smell in these rooms, I was ready to complain and try to get a refund from my Priceline win for this Hotel. I had it all planned out. The hotel is old. The elevator is slow. I liked the breezeway that they have built into the hallways. Nice so you can get a good cross breeze into your room if needed between the door and the balcony. We actually used that all weekend. I entered the room expecting a strong smell but was surprised there wasn’t any odor in the room. Yes, it’s old, outdated, but who cares? When on vacation why would you want to stay in your room other than to sleep or rest. There were a couple of hairs on the sheets. The bathroom floor and shower floor were a little dingy, some from wear, some from lack of cleaning. There was definitely some deep cleaning needed but nothing was dirty that bothered me. I’m talking about in the corners, dust on the doors and mirrors and such. I had the heat on at first but later it got too warm so I turned the air on. That’s when the aroma of urine filled the air. I feel that at least in my room on the 3rd floor that the smell is coming from air conditioner. I quickly turned the ac off and just used the balcony door to cool off the room. Saturday night the elevator wasn’t working but it was on Sunday morning. It must have just needed to reset or something. I only used the continental breakfast to get some hot chocolate for my sore throat. I will say that it didn’t look good at all. The person working to keep it up was very rude one morning but Sunday morning she actually said hi.
