We stayed at this hotel in July 2013. We picked it because we were in town for a surgery and it was close to the medical center. I was not very impressed with this hotel compared to other Baymonts I have stayed at in the past. It needs some serious updating and the room we stayed in did not feel all that clean. There was thick dust behind the bed and behind other furniture and the a/c filter had obviously not been changed in ages since there was a thick layer of dust on the ceiling where the vent blew. The room was also very small compared to what I am used to at American hotels.
The breakfast was so so. Waffles, breads, oatmeal and other pastries were offered but no protein. Scrambled eggs or sausage would have been nice. At least they had two waffle irons though. I have stayed at other hotels that offer breakfast and they usually have just one waffle iron which means it takes forever since each waffle takes about 2.5 minutes to make and one person from each group/family usually makes all the waffles for their group. That really holds up the line which is super annoying.
The hotel was a little hard to find. I booked it off of Hotwire and the address on the email that Hotwire sent me was totally wrong. I put it in our GPS and we ended up in the middle of some ghetto neighborhood. I had to call the hotel for directions twice for directions. The hotel was not visible from the freeway in the direction we came from so it was quite the ordeal getting to it. I informed the front desk about the address on my Hotwire receipt and they said they were going to notify Hotwire about it.
