Started off with high hopes, found rate on web, so emailed the hotel to see if they wanted to match rate and save 3rd party fees. GM agreed to do this. Turned out that we were able to extend our stay by two nights, so we asked for rate for two extra nights. GM quoted a really high rate for the extra nights, so looked on web for rates, found a reasonable rate and forwarded it to hotel GM to see if she wanted to match again. She refused, and cancelled out previous reservation. We then booked through a website at a rate about $50.00 lower than GM offered.......odd that she would rather pay 3rd party fees than match rate.....oh well.
When we arrived, hotel had a musty smell, and the reception lady was indifferent at best. Went to room and elevator was quick and clean. Hallway had the same musty smell as did the room, which was simply old and tired. 1970s furniture (old sofa with rips, old mattress, 1980s refrig, tube tv, no coffeemaker) but morning view from balcony was magnificent!
Housekeeping ladies were very nice and pleasant. My g/f is hispanic and we conversed with HK in Spanish and they were the nicest politest folks at this hotel without a doubt. Front desk folks were not so pleasant.
Friday night the drunk folks across the hall came in @ 2:30 and were running up & down the hall laughing and yelling for about an hour before we finally called front desk. First call to front desk went unanswered for 15 rings, hung up and called again and answered in 6 rings. It is not management's fault that other guests are inconsiderate, so we do not hold them against the management....not at all.....just know that this is a party area and this CAN happen.......the test is what management does about it.....in our case, the noise did stop aboput 30 minutes after our call to the front desk was answered (about 4:00 in the morning)
Check out was just like check in, cold and robotic.
Decent value for a family with kids, rooms big enough for a family of 4 for a fair price. Probably good for a group of teens/young adults to share a room to save cash and go to SPI to party. Would not recommend for any other visitors. There are many other options for couples or other vacationers that are a better value and a lot nicer properties.
