Pot smoking employees

To whom it may concern I was recently a guest at the hotel, my overall stay was good, but what I saw, and smelled, was not. the smell of pot began pouring into my room, a man wearing staff uniform was standing outside of my room smoking pot. I am in my room with my family, and can't believe this is going on right outside of my door. I thew on some clothes to confront them but the employee had left. I went to the front desk to complain, the guy's name is M__k Thorton The guy at the front desk said he would report it, but they seemed to be friends. I just don't think your company would want it's employees behaving in this manner, and representing your hotel this way.

Would not recommend

Our room was not clean when we arrived.It was not cleaned the next day after I asked for it to be.The next day after I asked the manager to have it cleaned.The following day was Thanksgiving and no cleaning person was on duty to give us coffee for our room.The continental breakfast was weak coffee and a packaged sweet roll and cheap kool-aid type fruit juice.I would not tell anyone to stay there.

Ridiculous MANDATORY Deposit

EVERY person staying must leave a deposit @ the front desk, whether your room is prepaid or not. Then a staff member must inspect your room before the deposit is released. Really!!?? The hotel is older but to be fair , the room was clean. The deposit issue was a huge unexpected and stupid surprise - we won't be back.

austin trip

AWFUL! It was FILTHY, HAD BUGS,. The computer in the lobby was broke the whole time. The breakfast offered looked and tasted old and overcooked. Had alot of homeless people around was harassed by them had my young daughter with me...could not swim for this reason. had a mix up with my room gave it to someone else. This was a horrible hotel we saw on the site that it was to be a 3.5 but turn out to be a LESS THAN DESIREABLE ONE. I STILL FEEL DIRTY!

Not Very Clean

I have stayed at other Baymont hotels which were nice, that's why I chose this one when making online reservations. The floor, chair, even the sheets had concerning stains. I won't stay there again.
