Great staff disappointment in facilities


January 19, 2023

Staff was amazing and very nice when greeting us and our pets. Great location that is in the center of the city. Room was nice except for the incident we had with a gross pest in the bathroom. If the hotel had better pest control it would be a great stay but don’t see myself staying in this location any time in the near future.

Needs a Lot of Updating and a Lot of Maintenance Work


December 29, 2022


The front desk staff I dealt with during my stay were friendly, cheerful and helpful.

The property is sorely in need of cleaning, maintenance and updating. The room had a dirty carpet; someone's Tupperware container was left in the microwave, the sink was cracked in numerous places and rather than be replaced, it had been caulked all over. The sink's stopper wasn't connected, so I couldn't open the stopper and the sink drained slowly. The previous occupant left a large something that appeared to have come from his or her nose stuck to the mirror. The hallway exit door required some magical touch so that it usually took many tries to get it to open from the inside. The TV appeared to be from the early 2000s. No, I didn't contact the front desk for cleaning or a new room as I wasn't feeling well, knew the housekeeping issues would not be relegated to this room alone, and I wanted to be left alone.

After five nights, I checked out and inadvertently left a gift box of expensive bourbon with a branded rocks glass on the table behind the TV. The next day, I realized what I had done and called the front desk. I was told by this person that he'd been on vacation, wasn't up to speed on what was going on, that my bourbon wasn't in the lost and found, and that someone would call me the next day. I waited until the afternoon of the next day and, after not getting a call back, I called again. This front desk person, after I explained what had happened, transferred me to who she said was the person I'd talked to. Instead, I was transferred to a woman's voicemail so, for the third time, I explained into the phone what had happened. I later received a call back from a man who said that housekeeping hadn't noticed the box on the table behind the television, that someone had spent two nights in the room after I left, and that no one had reported my boxed bourbon being left behind. Yes, it was all my fault for leaving it behind, but someone has walked off with an expensive gift box of bourbon and a rocks glass. Merry Christmas.
