Overall I was not impressed by this hotel. Immediately I was struck by how it smelled overwhelmingly damp in the lobby, hallway, and elevator. The lights also did that annoying buzzing that comes from industrial lighting past its prime. The staff
was helpful and polite throughout my two day stay. The continental breakfast was a complete joke, with mass produced danishes and english muffins. that was literally it. The room was clean but the mattress was very hard and I felt that there was this invisible grime covering all the services. Not horrible, but if there was another option for the same dirt cheap price, I probably would have stayed there instead. Honestly, you get what you pay for.
There is no shower exhaust fan in bathroom.
Our door was locked when we left the room - when we returned to the room the door was unlocked (spoke with desk supervisor who said he would speak to his clean up staff) Next time we returned to our
room we find the same thing had happened. Doors do not lock without slamming them and staff lets them quietly close unlocked.
This hotel is very smelly and loud. The walls were thin and you could hear every door slam. The first room I was in smelled moldy, but the staff graciously gave me another room, which was slightly better. Had I known, I would have stayed in nicer,
newer hotels about 15 minutes away. If you want to be right in the heart of Centralia then this hotel is good for that. Definitely a steal if you're looking to spend less.
