Our bathroom was in need of some work. Some cracks in the tile floor, caulking around the tub was pulling away from the tub and it looked like some mold where the caulking was loose. Otherwise, it was a pleasant room.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I was given a room which had not had the heat turned on for some time. Although I turned the heat on at approximately 11 pm-- the small blower device under the window-- it was 2 am before I could stop shivering and go to sleep. Ironic, since as a health care provider, I booked the room due to shifts under 8 hours apart, and the need to sleep. In addition, there was someone's DIRTY CLIPPED TOENAIL in the corner of the bathroom floor. Absolutely disgusting. Cleaning is not a priority there. So, it was so cold I couldn't sleep and dirty. Not going back.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Sheets in room were dirty, parking lot was not plowed or salted/sanded after recent snow-storm, the "breakfast" room was extremely sparse. Only 2 kinds of dry cereal, no fruit, coffee & juice cups had no lids, and there was not enough batter for the waffle machine to make a single waffle. I was the first and only guest to arrive for breakfast, and there was no staff on hand to assist me.
