Not bad but not the best choice

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 19, 2011

If for some reason all the hotels in town are booked and you need to use this one, fine, but otherwise, go for something else. Yes, it's pretty centrally located but so is every hotel in town and there are better choices.

The room was relatively dingy--not dirty, just not anything you'd want to look at for very long. The dust ruffles were wrinkled, the drawers in the bureau either didn't work or were crudely cut out for television wires, and the drapes had seen better days. The balcony was soaking wet even though it hadn't rained and there was incredibly early morning noise from the restaurant next door. The bathrooms were itty bitty as was the dressing area. The lamps didn't work and when we asked for lightbulbs they forgot to bring them.

That said, the breakfast area in the lobby is lovely and there are a few staff members who tried very hard. I won't be back but I've certainly had worse experiences and the price is cheap.

Unique Quality: None, really.
