Steer AWAY! We couldn't believe our eyes.
This place was not as was advertised on their website! Going up to our room was as if we were walking in my grandmothers very old house. halls were narrow and dark,so narrow that my husband and I could not walk side by side. Finally reached our room and opened the door and yep, just like a room in my grandmothers home. room extremely small, dresser drawers missing its fronts. the room had an unbearable smell of the old portable heater that they had on before we walked in. I called the front desk to at least give us a different room. They sent the bellboy up to show us another room, he took us to the next flight of stairs up, then another, then attempted to take us up another until we said No, that will be enough. (it felt like we were going to the attic. very scary) we tried to get our money back for the 4 days that we had reserved, the manager Angie was so rude and was reluctant that she only decided to give us 2 days back of costs.(I used to manage hotels and I know she has the authority to refund every penny back especially for someone that only spent 5min in the room)
To bad, for the location of this hotel, I expected so much more. The only good thing about this hotel were the Bell Boys. Nice, courteous and personable.
Will I ever come back to this hotel? Never!!!
What a disappointment.
