4/10 Fair

Disappointed and surprised.
Our room was SUPER small, which was ok, but for the price it was absolutely not worth it. The sink had no hot water, and the phone didn't work, The shower water pressure was equal to a water fountain. The temperature of the room was 81 degrees, and you were unable to adjust the temp. When we called the front desk, they told us to open the window to cool the room off, however we heard all of the outside noise for the night, and their other solution was to drop off a fan. Helpful-but not a solution. (The attitude of the front desk staff was cold and any time you had a question they seemed annoyed) Even though they said they would fix the phone and water temp/pressure, they never did. We decided the room must have been a converted utility closet, as the last time we have stayed at this hotel we had a very different experience.

Location, location, location
The service was friendly and accommodating. The room was very drafty and smelled like a foot. I don’t quite understand the heating and/or air conditioning. Apparently the hotel dictates when the heat or ac goes on and off. I don’t know if this is because the hotel is very old or to fight “climate change”, the sign was very ambiguous. If it wasn’t for location, a friendly staff and soft bedding, I would most likely never come back.
