The web site has stock photos that are not representative of the actual hotel with the exception of the photo of the front of the property. This is not a charming nor particularly clean property. It is neglected. The web site also indicates it is recently renovated. I promise you, our room hadn't seen a renovation in decades. There were all kinds of things under the bed. It obviously had not seen a vacuum in quite a while. There was a mirror hiding a hole in the wall and a rug on top of a portion of the carpet. There were about 10 feet or more of extension cords in a pile under the AC wall unit. The bathroom was quite dated. That did not bother me but the shower rod was extremely rusted and the grout in the shower was missing or dirty.
The web site also indicates there is airport transportation; maid service; fireplaces and a continental breakfast. They do not provide courtesy airport transportation; our room was not cleaned the 5 days and 4 nights we were there and the continental breakfast consisted of instant oatmeal; wonder bread; english muffins and pastries. If you want cream in your coffee, it is powered. As for the fireplace, it is a space heater.
We asked to have our room cleaned 3 different times and was assured that they clean all of their rooms daily. We never did get our room cleaned so we gathered the trash in the waste baskets and the wet towels in the bathroom and placed them outside of our room.
On the plus side, it was in a convenient location.
