This place is dirty and sloppy.
The room was adequate but nothing better. Fairly clean, but had a terrible feel to it. The window looked out on a parking lot where and old bathtub and various other items were stored in one corner. The furniture in the room and softgoods are tired and worn or scratched..
The public areas of this hotel are dirty and beat up. I wonder how many weeks since the public area carpets had been vaccumed.
The second floor hallway smelled terrible from disinfectant or air freshener. I don't want to think what this heavy use of odor-covering scents was covering up. The carpet was dirty and had many areas where paint chips had been knocked from the wall and left lying on the carpets, particularly in the corners.
The entry lobby at this hotel is dark and dank. The employees are sloppily dressed and appear to think the hotel is run for their pleasure and convenience -- not for us poor travelers who made the mistake of booking a room here.
I came back one day around lunchtime and the free breakfast area was filled with all the employees eating their sack lunches and leftovers from home, talking and laughing loudly while ignoring a customer at the desk.
The computer in the "business center" was out of service the second day I was there and the desk person did not offer help or offer to let me use one of the two terminals at the desk. Just wanted a quick check of my email. The person on the desk said of the broken computer: "maybe it will work later or maybe it's just having a bad day." Does Choice, Sleep and the local operator not train anybody to do anything?
Choice Hotels should looking at yanking this operation's franchise.
This was a loser hotel even by the low standards of an older Comfort Inn.
