1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I was traveling for work alone, Two men followed me into the hotel, the receptionist gave them my name and called me to tell me they were looking for me. I asked her who they were and she didn't take their names. She said if i really wasn't expecting visitors I should call the police. I called the police and they escorted me out. the hotel still charged me for my stay. Horrible experience.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. Although besides this there was not much else to say good to say about the hotel. the rooms were very big, which would be great but these just felt almost empty and could use some more storage and table space. There was no breakfast the two mornings we were there as well. Also, there is no microwave or mini-fridge... of course these are not required but I had never been to a hotel that did not have at least a microwave in the room. The biggest problem that we had during our face came down to the water; I noticed it first after I washed my hands... the water made my hands feel slimy. I brushed this off to the hand soap that we had bought (because none was supplied), but it was when I washed my face later that day that I felt it again. I had used my face wash that I use daily, and that slimy texture was still there on my hands and face. I was reluctant to shower because of how gross it made me feel, but when I did the slimy feeling was still there. All three of us who stayed within that room experienced this odd slimy water. Although the price was great, I would not stay here again unless I knew for certain that the water did not have the slimy residue.

I didn't like the fact that our room didn't has any soap. we went to the lobby and the receptionist only gave us one bar because he didn't have more and we where 3 persons. But overall the room was nice and it was clean.
