I stayed at this hotel exactly 1 year earlier and it could not have been better. This year was awful by comparison. Our "first" room had an awful musty/mildew smell that was overpowering as soon as you opened the door. Our next room had a "different" smell but was not unbearable. The grooves for the elevator door had dirt buildup, some wallpaper pealing in the foyer, the bedroom window had children's nose and handprints, there was a black beatle-type bug on one of the beds and several common areas that needed vacuuming. The place had an overall "grungy" feeling. I believe that there must be a large road construction project nearby. At 10:00pm, there were quite a few construction workers still wearing traffic vests roaming around the hotel. They were very dirty and smelly from working hard. One rode the elevator and walked around in his socks. His foot smell was overpowering and stayed in the elevator for quite some time. The next morning at breakfast, some of the workers stuffed the fruit and packaged food into their traffic vest pockets for the day. I was ill at ease with my wife and daughter walking in the hallways with this type of clientel staring and gawking. Overall, awful experience. Our worst stay at any hotel ever.
