Worst Stay Ever

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2011

Have traveled for more than 30 years and this stay was the number one worst ever. Even in the cheapest places you expect to get maid service. At 5PM for 2 days of our stay the room still was not serviced. We had to call the office to get the maid to come. Even when she did do service, she constantly forgot to provide items like toilet paper, wash clothes, dishwasher soap, etc. They must not be allowed to use cleansers, because we saw no evidence of it. Food crumbs on sofa left from previous occupants. It is obvious they are currently having a major housekeeping problem at this Residence Inn. The office personnel just kept saying "we're sorry".
The cook-top stove was nice but the pans they provide are not flat. It is a challenge to do any cooking on it.
Don't expect to have all you need in the kitchen. The flatware is a mangled mess and most of the items provided are very old, cheap or too small. By the way, not all the rooms in this inn are alike. We know because we have stayed there twice before.
Right outside our window was a basketball hoop, permanently installed in the parking lot. We had yelling and screaming one night until 11:15 PM. The highway traffic was also just yards away. We had to crank up the TV to hear it and of course could not sleep. Unless you have a 4-door sedan or smaller, you will find it difficult to maneuver in the tiny parking lot.
We used to recommend this place, but not anymore.

Unique Quality: Landscaping/Grounds very pretty.
