I have stayed at Garretts at least 4 times and I must be crazy because only once did we have half way decent beds. We select Garretts because it is close to the Plaza and a reasonable price, but after this last trip, we will never stay there again. The beds squeek when you make the slightest movement and they sag terribly to the middle and aren't the least bit comfortable. A year ago they said they were getting all new beds. Either they did and got a terrible deal or it was not the truth. If you want a good night's sleep, don't stay at Garrett's until they really do buy new, good quality beds.
We also found the staff to be unfriendly and not responsive to requests.
