  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Forum was not a good stay. There was bugs on our bed. The door in our room to our balcony was unfinished. Service was uncomfortable and not accommodating. There are cameras in the hallway and an employee openly admitted to watching us on the cameras in the hotel. We were threatened to be kicked out of the property if we did not wear wrist bands at 10 at night. Highschool aged people where partying in the rooms on our level which made it very difficult to enjoy our stay. The quality of the room was extremely unclean and we were charged additional money unnecessarily. To end our stay, we were rudely awakened and rushed out of our room to move our car from the lot. Would not stay again and would not recommend.

We stayed there for many years. Returned after 5 years. Poorly maintained. Floors were filthy. Beds not made the first morning we were there. Had 2 ask for wash cloths. Charged for parking at the hotel. $15 a nite. Unreal!
