One star quality at a three star price
Posted Oct 12, 2016
First, the good: my room was spotlessly clean. Everything else was disappointing. The front desk clerk had an awkward and abrasive personality. When he handed me the patronizing list of do's and don'ts, requiring initials and signatures (a first for me), that was my clue that I had chosen the wrong accommodations. He made me feel like a disobedient student checking into a college dorm. His authoritarian attitude was unnecessary and extremely annoying. His behavior might have been understandable if I was paying $39 to stay at a Motel 6.
Which brings me to the room; while it was clean, it was no better than a Motel 6, and indeed I have stayed in many Motel 6 rooms that were as good or even better than this and paid far less than $149 a night. The bed could only be described as a medieval torture device. It was hard as a rock and really no better than sleeping on the floor. The pillows were awful as well. Between the constant din of traffic roaring by, and the terrible bed, it was impossible to get any sleep.
I chose this property because of its proximity to where I needed to be the next day, however that proved to be a bad decision because I was awake all night, unable to sleep due to the noise and the uncomfortable bed.
