06-Sep-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Sep 04 to Mon Sep 06 2021 at a $140.49 average nightly rate.
"I scheduled online for an EXEC KING but because I asked for lower level facing a certain parking lot"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
At check in I didn’t get the exec king! I wish the clerk would have told me that by asking for a lower level I wasn’t going to get the exec king. The room didn’t have a tub! It was a room designed for someone with mobility concerns or disabled. I didnt need that. THE ROOM appeared TO BE in need of some TLC The breakfast buffet was not what I expected. HOUSEKEEPING KNOCKED ON OUR DOOR AT 9am ! ?? The door entry device was a pain! I had to knock on the door to be let in by the person I was sharing the room with. Not what I expected after reading all of the review before choosing this hotel! Finally we called the desk around 7 or 8pm for an extra blanket but they never came. So, when I walked up to the desk around 9:30, The guy behind the desk sai, “oh, didn’t they deliver that to you”? No, honestly, I do not think I will staybthere again! I like the location!
