Worst hotel ever

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in . We waited over an hour for 5 sets of people to check in , when it was our turn we then had to wait again as 2 sets of people came back for a refund as they walked in the rooms and saw the condition . The lift took 10 mins and the safety certificate was out of date , hence we walk the 5th floor every time . There were no towels or blankets available at all for two days . No internet . Toilet seat fell off every time you sat on it .there were ants in the rooms and room stank of foist.this truly was terrible . Do not spoil your holiday by staying in this filth even if it is cheap . We didn't try the cleaning staff as we were too scared to trust them as the safe had the locks drilled out .

Under construction

They didn't have enough king bed rooms. The few they did have weren't all clean. Had to switch to a different room category. The only positive about the entire trip was the staff. They tried to get the problem solved. By the looks of it they are under construction because 2 of the three elevators didn't work and 10 rooms were being torn apart and redone.

Convention Stay

Check in was challenging. One front desk 7-3 staff told me I could not check in until 4 pm. At 2:20 pm she is checking in a couple, her computer reportedly "went down", so shortly after the 3 pm crew was at the reception desk, the computers came back up & those of us waiting in the lobby area were checked in. The room was clean, chipped paint was the only flaw noted on the door trim. I asked for a mini fridge & one was delivered within minutes. There were no wash clothes in the room, as in many European hotels I'd stayed at. For the cost, it was a great value, close to the convention center.

Dining tip: In Hotel

If room coffee is desired, bring your own coffee maker, otherwise at the far end of the first floor there is an area for coffee & breakfast for stays that book breakfast.

They just did not let us in

When we arrived, the clerk told us the hotel was overbooked and my reservation (prepaid 2 months in advance) has been cancelled. Staff was very unapologetic and unfriendly, left my family stranded at night on Dec, 28th with no place to go.

Not what I expected

The only thing great about this hotel was the location. This hotel was advertised as a 3 star but was more like a 2 star. The rooms did NOT look like the pictures on the Internet. They were very dated and the carpets were old and dingy. Check-in took over an hour. The site advertised microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms but were not. The beds were uncomfortable (you could actually feel the springs). I had to walk to get my own towels every night. If I didn't pre-pay for this hotel, I would've left. Definitely would not stay here again unless they do a full renovation.

Budget Motel with nice amenities

For the price and during a holiday week, I can't complain. The stairwell was so dirty, and didn't have our name at check-in and was very frustrating to confirm reservation. Got a better price for 2nd night by booking directly through hotel website. I liked that check out is at noon instead of 11 like most other hotels in the area.
