The room was dirty, bathroom had hair all over the floor and in the sink. Trash up agaisnt the headboard of the bed. Huge spiderweb in the corner of the room. Black mold in the shower. The "breakfast" was nothing but cereal and a waffle. Was not happy with this hotel at all and even more disappointed in the fact that i used my room credit coupon foe this horrible place. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

This USED to be a nice hotel.....not anymore

Pros: The clerk was nice
Cons: A royal cleaning and upgrading up the facilities, its pretty run down.
I stayed at the Staybridge Inn and Suites on 6/1/18 and was very disappointed in how dirty everything was. Upon entering the lobby it was quite clear I was going to be in for a stay in a dirty hotel. The carpets were absolutely filthy ( you can tell as soon as you arrive in the lobby and look at the stairs). Room carpets were really dirty, cob webs, broken lock on my door, very moldy nasty looking shower curtain. At one time when this hotel was owned by someone who cared....this was probably a decent place to stay. I won't be staying here again, very disappointing, NOT worth the $ 80 bucks! The clerk was very nice though.

Great People!!

Cons: The only thing I would improve on is the Breakfast Area! Very Cramped and Very little selection.
I made a mistake with my reservation. Even though I used Travelocity to book my room. The staff quickly resolved my mistake and made sure I wouldn't be charge extra.
