We booked late for JMU Family Weekend and had a really tough time finding anything. I didn't have much choice so I went through Hotwire. I'm sure rates were raised for this event because it was in the neighborhood of $150-175 which is ridiculously high for this place. Anyway, when I found out what chain it was I was nearly panicked due to the overall reputation and the reviews on here. That sounds snooty I know, but it's how it is.
Pros: Our room must have been remodeled in the not too distant past because it was still clean and didn't have that old/musty smell. The bathroom definitely looked remodeled. I could see where it had been painted and the fixtures looked new except for the tub. We had a microwave and fridge (didn't need or want them, but no extra charge).
Cons: We weren't there long enough to shower but the floor and walls of the tub needed a good scrubbing with bleach. Blech If the room was redone, they kept the old bedding and mattresses. I swear the blanket was made of cardboard and burlap. I can't even describe how scratchy it was. The mattress had that old, saggy feeling and anytime you moved it shook the whole bed. There was a whole line of discarded sinks out by the dumpster by parking lot. Really? They couldn't have been taken to the dump or something. The tv was a good size but the picture was dreadful. Sounds trivial, but where is the channel guide?
Bottom line: if you are desperate you could get by if you get a remodeled room. For the price we paid, it wasn't worth it.
