Marginal place to stay
Posted 20-Oct-2015 on Orbitz
Slightly shabby hotel that exemplifies the adage you get what you pay for. Inexpensive and rightly so. Nothing drastic but so many little things that were wrong or just off. 1) Front desk clerk incompetent, had trouble with the computer, took us ten minutes to get checked in. Asked if we were OK with second floor (we said yes) then gave us a first floor room (room number started with a 2) so we went upstairs looking for the room. Also told us the room number loudly with other people in the lobby (typically hotels will just tell you the room number is on the folder the key is in for security and privacy reasons). Generally unprofessional overall. 2) Door to room wouldn't close on its own. 3) Door to the hotel building where the room is wouldn't open, cut my hand trying to force it. 4) Exterior light outside the other hotel building (where we went to try to find our lost second floor room) had bulb burned out, quite dark. 5) Hotel advertised continental breakfast. Not sure what continent it was on but if it was North America it was in another location, not this hotel, which still had not opened the lobby when we left, much less set up a breakfast. 5A) With office closed one would have expected a drop off box or something for the room key(s). One would have been wrong. Drove back to the room to leave the keys there. 6) Parking lot and access thereto in severe need of paving repair. On the plus side, the TV and remote actually functioned, the toilet flushed, and the beds had no apparent infestation of insect life.
