Terrible

Pros: The front desk staff were nice.
Cons: Cleanliness, maintenance, accessibility
I required accessible room. The sheets were stained. The shower head fell off wall. Moved to another room which did not have accessible bathing. And that room’s furniture was stained and I don’t know what was on the coffee table.

BED BUGS!!!!

Cons: CLEANLINESS. And CUSTOMER SERVICE. With regret, the hotel manager informed me that she couldn't comp my room because I'd booked through Travelocity.
With thousands of nights in hotels worldwide, I've never experienced bed bugs before. I woke up scratching myself silly at 3am, used the flashlight on my phone to see what the matter was, and actually caught a photo of a bed bug on the sheets! I got dressed, went downstairs, and they gave me a new room, but by that time I was scratching so badly that I couldn't sleep. They did give me trash bags to put luggage in so that I could eliminate any bed bugs that may desire to travel to my home. I've discovered that I'm very very sensitive to bed bugs - see the picture of several bite marks that were only a few hours old. (They get worse with time.) In the end, I had over 60 bites all across my body, and it's been a miserable week even with the steroids that my doctor prescribed for me. With regret, the hotel manager informed me that she couldn't comp my room because I'd booked through Travelocity. She did offer me a voucher for a free night if I'm in the area again. You've got to be kidding me!!! She said the bed bugs weren't her fault, that lots of people stay there and therefore there are bed bugs. Remember -- thousands of nights in hotels worldwide, in cheap ones and expensive ones -- so I don't buy this excuse one bit. You couldn't pay me to stay here again.

Excellent customer service and comfortable bed.

I was arriving late so I called ahead and spoke with Joan. She was so friendly and courteous. I was extremely tired and she had me taken cared of in no time. I got to my room and it was clean and the king size bed with 4 pillows welcomed me to my temporary 1 day home. I slept like a baby. The next morn2 Homer was also very courteous and check the breakfast area many times to make sure everything was good. Overall great place for the price. I guess I could of just said that to begin with.
