DO NOT STAY HERE! This is the filthiest hotel I have ever stayed in! While the rooms are shabby, it’s basic cleanliness that is problematic. The first room we were checked into had several bugs in the bathtub, an enormous roach in the corner of the bathroom and a dirty, dusty ice bucket. It was painfully apparent this room hadn’t been cleaned properly in ages. The manager came to our room, scooped up the roach and moved us. The second room had a broken back on the remote and a mildew-encrusted shower curtain. There is a MW on the first floor for public use. There was so much caked-on dirt on the inside, that I abandoned my plans for popcorn. Upon checkout, the clerk kindly removed a night’s charge from our bill, but it was a skeevy experience and upon my return home, I left my suitcase outside of the house until I could inspect it thoroughly in fear of the Sonesta “critters.” TRU by Hilton is newer and far cleaner.

Bathroom was too small! The door literally hit the toilet every time it was opened. Also, the smell of weed in the parking lot during evening and morning. No complimentary breakfast. Pool was nice, rooms were clean. Check in staff was courteous and professional. Close to everything we needed.

I booked the hotel thinking it was a Hyatt hotel but when I got there it was a Sonesta Select. They had recently changed hands. The check-in process wasn't smooth due to them adjusting to the new computers. I was almost charged twice for the room because they were unfamiliar with Orbitz. The room we checked into was spacious but was suppose to have a king not two double beds. It ended up working out fine for us. The room was clean but the carpet had some stains that need to be addressed. Hardly any channels on the TV actually came in due to a bad signal. There was also no complimentary breakfast as indicated on Orbitz but I was welcome to pay for an overpriced prepackaged breakfast if I wanted to. Overall, the stay was ok but not exceptional.

Hotel was close to the Spiece Center were we had a basketball tournament. The room was clean, the noise level was minimal, breakfast was sufficient and they let us check in a little early. The only thing I didn't care for was their mask policy for common areas. We just used the side doors and avoided the front lobby area.

The rooms are out dated, the the bathrooms are tiny, you cant even fit two people in the bathrooms. They have a draining problem with showers and sinks. Had to change my room and it went from bad to worse. Had a disgusting stain in the toilet and shower. Will not be going to this hotel again.

Friendly staff and very conscientious about virus control. Good location with food and entertainment nearby.

Very nice hotel. I was bummed they didn’t have an indoor pool but I knew this when booking. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great as usual.

Didn't like that the bathroom sink was in the bedroom and not the bathroom. Breakfast was not great! the bacon didn't look like bacon and there were no pastries :(

Only there brak fast some food is dry and coffe is cold

It was acceptable but not great. For the price it was good. I would stay there again. The location I liked also.

Its always ckean and they always help in area of our stay

Overall clean, staff friendly, hotel up to date. Pool small but satisfying.

Breakfast was pretty good that's about it. Much older than other Hyatt Place properties I've stayed at. Just sort of a little bear. There was also a large party of young people up all night every night of the stay. Woken up by shouting, running, or music each night. Front desk didn't care and was actually rude when it was reported.

It wasn’t just the air conditioning that would not work. It was the bathtub that would not drain well, the sticky stuff left on most of the tables, the floors that had clumps of dirt (or something that resembled dirt), and the sheets that were not quite clean from the last guest. If we had not arrived at midnight, we would not have stayed the 1st night. We chose s different hotel for the send night. We expect more from a Hyatt hotel.
