One of the main reasons I stayed there was because of the location and the name of the hotel.
First the good news: The location was great. Just a couple of minutes commute to the place I was working.
Now the Bad news:
The pictures on the website showed continental breakfast and a nice place to sit down, watch some news and eat a light breakfast. WRONG! First, there was no room for that. That is an artist impression as to what it will be upon remodel. To fill the breakfast gap, they have a tray on the front desk with a few cans of juice, some wrapped up store bought pastry, and coffee in the laundry room. The coffee, when the staff decides to brew it, doesn't have creamer or sugar there very often. I went down several times around 6:15am or so and, no coffee. To solve the creamer situation when there was coffee, I broke down and bought my own at the Walmart which is close by. They do not stock your room with the coffee packs to last more than 2 days. Oh, I forgot to tell you, it was an old broken down Candlewood suites. Please don't think I don't like Candlewood, I do, and stay there often. This hotel needs remodeling real bad.
The staff: Really?! Smoking outside the majority of the time. They leave a sign saying in case of emergency, dial "0". Please, have corporate do a spot check on these people. I could go on but, enough said.
The room: The bathroom was what one could say, barely clean. Like they kind of wiped it down but didn't really clean it. The shower curtain rod was held up by an old shampoo bottle! The shower curtain was torn up. The air conditioning unit had a couple of broken boards around the bottom of it with staples sticking out. They still use old bedspreads. Good luck with that. Knowing the rest of the cleaning quality, I can only imagine what was crawling around in that bedspread! They only clean once a week and if you want towels or linen, bring the old ones down to the front desk and they will give you new ones. I guess I would have to make my own bed? The trash situation: take it out yourself? No trash pickup. People leave it out in the hall an they would pick it up..... eventually.
Finally: If it would not have been for the location and that everything else around was booked, and if I would not have booked it as a package, I WOULD HAVE GOT MY MONEY BACK AND CHECKED IN SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
