Was expected for the price. Definitely don’t inspect/clean rooms to well after. The bed was tilted and very uncomfortable. Looked and I bed wheel had came off. This is how we came to the room. I figured the bed was just crap. It was a simple put the wheel back on and done. There was soda splattered all up and down the wall. Spiderwebs in corners of room. Easy cleanable things.

It met our needs for a room to sleep and shower but the property was messy and made us feel nervous about our stay. The room didnt appear dirty though. No room service due to Covid which was slightly frustrating too as this was not mentioned on the site.

I was charged a pet fee which I had already paid. The room was not clean. There was dirt, dust and trash under the bed, a water glass and tons of dust and dirt.. The floor was wooden and warped up and down. The bathroom was also not exactly clean and the tub was not level while standing to shower. It was an inset shower and leaned to the outside making it a roller coaster to stand in while taking a shower with no hand rail. The rate was high for what was offered. The room next door was nicer when I saw the door open. I was in # 14. The staff is nice enough but they offer no cleaning, linen change, towel service or trash clean up… unless you ask them to do it I guess. I left 3 days worth of garbage and used my own bags as I left . I guess you just do it all yourself. This place was the near bare essentials for $130/night. Cheap for the area I guess but definitely the bare bones motel. The area and atmosphere, and attractions is what keeps this place going…. Not the rooms.

This is an Old Hotel. The rooms have been updated, are clean and comfy. If you want a modern, high end hotel then Brookside is not for you. We paid 1/3 what the other hotels wanted and were more than happy with Brookside.
