My wife and I with our two children were checked into a room where we found a huge amount of mold on the bunk beds and on one of the pillows on the king bed. The room also smelled of mold. We reported the issue and were move to another only to find more mold under the window sill. This room also smelled of mold. We were then moved to a third room in two nights and finally did not find any mold in the room but the damage to our two night stay had already been done. Management was prompt and did a good job managing the issue but that amount of mold in hotel rooms in unacceptable.
I wanted to give this a better review because the staff is super friendly. Chad, the weekend bartender may be the absolute best bartender I’ve ever seen. The front desk girls are super sweet. But that’s where the good stuff ends. The hotel opened in November 2017. The first room we were in was on the 5th floor. It wasn’t bad. We were there for a softball tournament. Had a game Friday night. When we got back, our daughter tried to take a shower. The shower didn’t work. We were then moved to a room on the 4th floor. The ceilings in all the rooms are concrete. On the 5th floor, we didn’t notice this problem but our room on the 4th floor was extremely humid. Everyone on our team in a room anywhere except the 5th floor experienced this problem. Sheets felt damp. Both rooms, the painting on the walls looks like it was done by a kid. The sliding door for the bathroom in the room on the 5th floor was broken and wouldn’t shut all the way. Both rooms, the floor of the shower and the area around the handle of the door was dirty. The a/c only goes down to 66 and the rooms did not ever get very cool. Really, the only thing saving me from giving this hotel a lower rating is the staff...but I think even as great as they are, they aren’t enough to make me want to book again.
The hotel isn't complete, needs more furniture in the rooms and lobby. No food service except breakfast, The Bar did not have regular hours, The whole place smelled musty and old. Lobby was not kept clean, rugs where not vacuumed, washing machine leaked water all over the laundry room floor.
My wife and I checked into the hotel last Friday night (after finding the entrance). We were in a queue at reception, the receptionist was obviously under pressure. First impressions a wannabee trendy hotel. We then went to the room, oh my what a shock smelly, dank, cheap paint job on the walls dirty. No chair at the desk and strangely no wardrobe, it must be an urban living thing just to have a rail jutting out from the wall and wallah you have the novel wardrobe. We went to the bar around 8 pm, TV's on all the drinks out lights on, we sat at the bar(all in full view of the receptionist) after waiting 20 minutes for the barman to turn up I approached the receptionist and asked where he was. The reply was"he has gone home cos he thought there were not enough people in the bar" GREAT. We went back to our smelly dirty room packed our belongings and checked out, I would have rather driven home that remain (we managed to get into a traditional hotel in that I mean clean, nice smell and wardrobes. We did ask to speak to the manager but apparently, he had gone home as well, must be that urban thing again. Top Tips for the hotel 1. Get rid of the nasty musty smell 2. Have staff on duty that has been trained in customer service or even just on duty. 3. invest in more lighting and cleaners
Overall, this is Nice Hotel that was renovated and is very modern look on the inside. Outside is pretty plain without any covered drive up to Entrance. Not a deal breaker considering the extension work inside. Walls of rooms caterto Texas A&M Aggie Pride whichnis a nice touch if you are staying for a Game experience. Rooms were very clean and sleek. Very nice Bathroom with Glass slide door and mounted Shampoo and soap dispensers. The only issue was the noise from my room on the 5th floor near the south end. It sounded like a louder than normal AC unit running but, wasn’t the room AC. Possibly the Cooling Units on the roof, not exactly sure. Possibly not in every room but, not a big issue to change rooms. Really nice bed and comfortable and liked the fact it’s within walking distance from many restaurants and shopping. Great work on the remodeling and would stay again.
We had a last minute trip and they were very accommodating. The employees at the front desk were friendly and helpful!
This was a family visit to the University and I wished I had seen some of the previous reviews before staying here. This hotel seems to want to emulate The Element hotel, but doesn't know how to do that. The breakfast food is sparse, no water available, no decaf coffee (yes some of us can't drink caffeine). There is a nice wine bar area that I thought might offer some evening happy hour, but it did not. The first morning trying to use the shower resulted in water overflowing because the drain was plugged. The front desk said we could just "deal with it" or move. It was impossible to stay in that room so that resulted in a rushed change of rooms as we tried to get out the door to a meeting. That room also had nails that were sticking out of the door frame that could cause some serious damage it you hit your leg on it. The 2nd day I used the laundry only to find out that there was also a flood in there when the washer ran. Reported to the front desk who gave me towels to mop up the mess. Evidently their maintenance personnel are only available one day of the week and I hadn't gotten either of the days they were available. The exercise room is nice, but there were no towels or water available. There was a place for sanitary wipes to wipe down sweaty equipment, but was never filled. It was obvious the room was never cleaned in the time that we were there. The bathrooms off the lobby area had the space for toilet seat covers, but they were never utilized. It's just little things that you notice like the previous review about the wrong size kleenex boxes and difficult to find the entrance much less where to park. Has potential but the management chain needs to do a walkthrough and make some changes.
Still some basic details with remodeling need to be addressed. Some of the tile flooring in the elevator had come up, the rack in the closet fell off in the middle of the night, was a more than a little frightening, but only a suit and a dress shirt were hanging on it, so it wasn't the weight, the anchor came loose. Also, would prefer bar soap over the liquid, inconvenient in the shower.
Stayed here while in town to celebrate my son's birthday. I was thinking since this newly opened, that it would be nice, and everything in brand new condition. The hotel has a pretty funky layout, and it isn't real clear where the front door is. Check in was quick, but we were unpleased with our first room- it was an accessible room, and the shower had no curtain- it was just open to the bathroom, free to drain where-ever. There was one light switch for a very dim light right by the door, but then you pretty much had to grope your way into the room, looking for a light to turn on. The man at the front desk let us move to a regular room. Same lighting issues as before. While the pictures on the website make the rooms appear nicely furnished, they were pretty bare. They really remind me of a slightly nicer redo at Motel 6 (laminate flooring, bare bones furniture, and a TV mounted to the wall). The paint job of the "accent" walls was not great, and the nice new bathroom had a vent cover that looked like it was 20 years old-odd. The beds are super tall (you literally have to climb into them), and were comfortable, but all the pillows are feather filled, which did not make for restful sleep. The TV remote only worked if you positioned it right under the TV. This place has a ton of potential, especially being so close to A&M, but the little details were overlooked. Two of many examples: 1. The morning breakfast buffet had paper coffee cups, but the lids did not fit on them. So it was difficult to take your coffee with you, much less keep it warm. 2. The bathroom had a nice square holder for kleenex, but the kleenex box was rectangular, so it was just sitting on top of the tissue holder. I suggest the management go thru each room with a SPOTLIGHT to check out the paint issues (look also at the ceilings), as well as figure out what amenities they wish to offer. Then do these REALLY well.
TRYP is a neat concept, but poorly executed at this hotel. 1.) the place is still in remodeling phase. It's not ready to open, but I'm guessing the contractor was horrible, and now is also behind schedule. There was a portable generator in the back parking lot running a power line up to the roof. Some rather non-professional looking workmen were still casually at-it in various hotel rooms. 2.) Our shower didn't work. My guess is the plumbing system is crusted and that has clogged many of the showers or valves. I wouldn't drink the water from the tap. 3.) Hot water is SCALDING hot - I'm surprised they haven't noticed this or gotten complaints. I would not let children use the faucets without a grown-up ensuring the temperature is steady and safe. 4.) I am certain someone will have a wreck in the parking-lot the way the dumpster fencing blocks a drivers view. They really need to put signs and mirrors up to prevent that. 5.) The bed was super comfortable, 6.) Jason's deli next door; Jack in the Box (24 hours) out front; ColdStone Creamery next door. All very convenient. 7.) I would avoid the pool and hot tub at this point due to questionable sanitation issues.
