...then this hotel would be just fine--a bit small--but just fine. But a hotel is not just a room--it is a home away from home, a getaway, and an office space for those of us who travel for work. After reading mostly positive reviews about this hotel and comparing it to the more expensive ones around--I felt confident in staying here, although I never stay at Sleep Inns. The disappointment has been all mine. To begin with, the upkeep outside is severely lacking. The potholes in the parking lot, the desperate need of a paint job, the poor lighting, and the mysterious semi trailer parked in front blocking half of the entrance (that has since remained there for the duration of my week stay) all made me a little nervous about checking in late at night. And then I was greeted with the rudest welcome I have yet received at a hotel. Between her massive gulps of her extra large cup of soda, she all but insulted me for my presumption that I could present my tax exempt status upon check-in and receive my tax exemption. She was rude and belittling. I spend 50-100 night in hotels per year for business and I have always, always presented by tax exempt forms upon check-in. She offered no help and no explanation. She was simply rude. I'm not sure if they are employees, friends of employees, or shady guests, but the entrance is constantly swarmed by smokers suffocating guests as they come and go. This is a very unappealing hotel with a very lacking staff. And that doesn't even mention the traffic! The hotel is within walking distance of a number of chain restaurants and stores--but do not try to walk to them! There is no sidewalk or pedestrian accessibility, and the traffic is bizarrely horrible. I would sooner jump in a shark tank than try to walk across the main road a block away, and navigating it in a car is almost as bad. I would recommend not staying at any hotel on this exit until the infrastructure is improved--and certainly not this Sleep Inn!
