2/10 Poor

6/10 Good

Nice staff, but super run-down room.
The front desk staff in the fancy hotel across the street was very friendly and kind. Mainly, the hotel room itself was pretty terrible. The beds were something smaller than a queen, so my partner and I had to sleep in separate beds. The room was in desperate need of general maintenance- marks, dents and paint-chipped walls, stained carpet. When I lifted the bath towel off the hanging rod, the entire fixture fell off onto the floor (thankfully, it didn't land on my toes). There were dead bugs on the vanity counter. No phone in the room, so if you have a question, you have to walk outside and across the street to ask the front desk. TV remote buttons broken. The cark park is right outside the door, so it was rather noisy with people in and out of cars all night. On the plus, there was a refrig in the room, that was nice. Would be a nice little place if they would just tidy it up and do some maintenance.

Needs works
Run down ripped carpet stairs. Didn't see an employee the entire time, the toilet didn't work well, the TV only got one station, the internet only worked sometimes. Cans of full cigarette butts out side my room on the balcony. Zero paintings or pictures on the walls in the room.

The room has no coffee amenities, no furniture to speak of a patio table inside, and room was not cleaned on a two night stay. It’s very old and outdated.
