OK stay, hotel in need of an upgrade/renovation
Posted Jan 24, 2017
Staff - very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Food - the breakfast every morning was wonderful and weekday happy hours are a nice treat.
The building - she's tired. The rooms are in need of an upgrade. This is evident by many things: Burners that didn't work right, doors that are so far out of alignment that either wouldn't close as it hit the trim/door jamb (bathroom), or closed but was so far out of alignment that it would get stuck (bedroom). There was also a lingering old aroma - no fault of the cleaning staff, simply old carpets and window treatments. The heat/AC unit also had a mind of its own and would not properly regulate the temperature. The décor and furniture is outdated.
Item last - the parking and driveway. There are signs up at the hotel exits warning about potential black ice conditions. This was appreciated; however nothing seemed to be done to reduce the hazard/risk. I did not see a single grain of salt or sand put down in the parking lot or sidewalks, and the conditions absolutely called for it. There was sleet one day during our stay, and wet snow on a second. Both times the driveway/parking area turned into a hockey rink and guests are risking serious injury getting to their cars.
