Not taking COVID seriously
The property is located far back from the main road and is very quiet. There are two other hotels, Hampton Inn and Holiday Express, further down the side street. Despite signs to socially distance, etc. the only front desk staff lady was not wearing a mask. The front desk had a plastic barrier open at the bottom...is it just me or does this make anyone really feel safe?
I smelled smoke on the third floor and as soon as we got in room, smoke alarms were going off and we had to vacate and wait outside while fire trucks inspected. The one front desk staff person was outside talking with many others, including firemen, and still was not wearing a mask, nor social distancing. A fair number of people entering this hotel did not have masks so it's apparent this hotel does not enforce. Honestly, I was ready to go elsewhere because I feel if a hotel does not do the simplest things like have their own staff wear masks and require masks in public areas, where else are they cutting corners? We almost checked out because of this but were too tired. The "suite" is not a separate area, but a couch at far end of room. Beds were cozy though I rolled into middle. TV worked fine. I did not use shower so can't comment. It was quiet with no other room or people noise, much appreciated. Checkout was easy as invoice left under door. Breakfast was yogurts, granola bars, etc. kept behind front desk...two of us three did not bother.
