Fair 4.0
Not a happy camper
I would have given this hotel a higher rating if not for the rude check-in staff. I found them rude and not helpful at all.

Poor 2.0
Unclean Bed
I arrived after 11 PM. Check in was fast, but when I got in to the room and started to get ready to go to bed extremely tired from a long trip, I lifted the cover to find some stuck bodily fluid in there. I called the front desk using the room phone, and no answer. I was rerouted to their national call center “as no was available in the lobby”. After two calls, and because I was so exhausted, I just slept over the covers. The place is noisy and old.
