This was a decent hotel off the beaten path. Relatively close to Richmond BMX. Mainly stayed here for that, plus they accept pets, which was also part of the decision.
The room was great. Definitely high end with granite counter tops, no slam cabinets and drawers. Had full size refrigerator, microwave, stove top. Unfortunately didn't bring much food with me for this stay, so couldn't take full advantage. They did have a little shop at the front desk for some food items.
Was a bit disappointed there was no breakfast included. Other hotels like this with full kitchen, also include breakfast at this price. So for $75 for the pet added to the $129 room rate, with no breakfast, the value was poor.
Elevators were super slow. And only had the 1 elevator. Was a bit annoying they parked the hotel van right in front of the entrance, which then blocked others from using the space to unload or load. Had to complain about another car parked behind the van, which then blocked getting into the parking area.
Was a little confusing on the AC at first as the buttons on the unit didn't work. They have a thermostat on the wall that controls things. A little sign on the AC unit would have helped. Also the AC apparently has a sensor whether you are in the room or not, so was a little warm when you first go in. A good concept to save electricity while not in the room. And it cooled down fast.
So all in all, decent stay. Would have been nice to have breakfast included. And is maybe 5 miles from the restaurants on the main strip. So a little high priced for what you get. But the room was quiet, which was very nice. And felt there was plenty of room. Liked the no slam cabinets and drawers.
Staff was friendly.
