Roach Motel

Room was disgusting. Mold in the shower, ceiling paint falling down, rug stained in numerous spots, rust on towel rack and door handles. Even had to kill a huge Roach. Veronica at front desk was unpleasant and couldn't even call us to let us know our shuttle pick up was going to be late. Chose to lie and say he waited for us then left when we didn't show up. Meanwhile we were 10 minutes early. Shuttle drivers were very nice but the shuttle was falling apart. Had to rig the seatbelt for my son. I wish I thought of taking pictures to send to thier corporate office.

Don't be fooled by negative feedback

First let me say that when I booked this trip I used Baymont because of the fact that I have stayed in them before in other parts of the country. Now one must know that Baymont is a value hotel so if you come in here thinking that you are getting the Omni for 59 dollars a night you are not thinking about it correctly. My suite is exactly what I need. Having the two room suites is great so the kids can have their space and the adults can have theirs. Also the room was spotless just it has been at every other Baymont I've ever used. They have a shuttle that will take you just about anywhere within reason at no cost to you and the staff is fantastic. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
