I asked the booking agency for two nonsmoking ground floor rooms but were given two rooms on the second floor and way down the hall from each other. Wouldn't you think you would book the two rooms next to each other unless asked to do otherwise?
It sure would be logical to me.
Also the air conditioner in Room 240 was so noisy it soulded like a freight train coming through every time it kicked in and it only kicked in a couple of minutes at a time. Just enought to scare you awake. There were missing light bulbs in both lamps on the tables. I know they were probably stolen by previous guests but that probably should be checked when the rooms are cleaned.
Also there was a ladder just leaning against the wall in the hall.
The people at the front desk and other staff were very nice but it would be nice if they all spoke English since this is the USA, right?
Nice breakfast and the little gal working the breakfast room was right on the ball filling everything up. She did a nice job.
I would probably stay there again but would certainly
check out that air conditioner noise first.
Beds were very comfortable.
