It is a basic one-night stay. We did not expect anything fancy, and it was exactly like that. However, the whole check-in process took 45 minutes due to account issues of the hotel with Orbitz. The front desk person had to call customer care while we waited. It was brutal for us since we wanted to rest before next morning flight. The vending machine was broken, the magnetic key card did not work on the first go, meaning I had to come down the stairs, walk all the way to the front desk and get another key. The front desk person were extremely slow and fussy, not tech savvy as well, to make things worse. Not a very good experience.

Hot tub and pool are cover, can not use. Room are not clean, show do not work. People smoke all over in hallway, staff like never see.

This was an economical hotel that we very much appreciated after a long first day on our trip. Room was sufficient to get the job of sleeping and showering done. Wouldn't recommend for extended stay.

The stay was amazingly fun glad the hot and pool was open

The Discovery Inn offers basic, affordable accommodations. It strives to make them pleasant but it's difficult to overcome years of minimal reinvestment in the property and intentional economization. So towels are small and thin, bedding is soft (mattresses) and meager (blankets), the carpet feels like it's been there forever, and the breakfast falls short of, say, what you'd find at a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express. That said, the place was clean and staff are organized and kind, especially those working the night shift, and do their best to make everyone comfortable. If you're looking for a budget hotel, you could definitely do much worse. The Discovery Inn is honest about what it offers and avoids over-promising, which I appreciate.

This hotel was an interesting mix of very nice and super getto. Homeless people walking around everywhere in the area. When I got to my room, there was no alarm clock and I was informed that they do not do wake up calls. I also immediately noticed that the deadbolt on my room did not work. I reported this and was asked, well, can you live with it? The towel rack was also falling off the wall and the doors and walls were filthy. That being said, the room had very nice crown molding, granite countertops, and a nice stone shower. Weird mix of nice and getto..... The bed was super soft. I thought it was going to be terrible, but I actually slept great in it! Breakfast did not start by the time I had to leave at 6, so I don't know how that was...

Requested a non smoking room and the room smelled like smoke. Turned on the TV and the remote did not work. Had to have the front desk come to the room to fix. In the morning we went down to breakfast and the front desk guy did not even look up. The tables were dirty and the syrup and breakfast rolls were not empty and the front desk guy could have cared less. Overall it was a terrible night and would not stay there again.

Cannot sleep due to water running noise from other rooms and noises from people just walking on 2nd floor. Water temperature controls was not labeled and difficult to set, I almost got scorched. Toilet flushing was very weak.

Very nice and close to great food paces. Staff was very nice and friendly.

Should of known by the faint order as we entered the front of the hotel it was not going to be what I had thought of when booking a nice clean hotel would be like. One word NASTY!

Hotal staff is friendly and very help ful clean rooms and always have coffee up front
