The room smelled so bad we couldn’t stay. They said they couldn’t give us a different room so we lost our money. Will never stay at a Doubletree again!!

The young lady, Lesley, at the front desk was wonderful! She is a true asset to the hotel! The property was clean as well. But the chairs in the room were peeling and the pool was green and closed. My son had been excited to swim. It was not noted that the pool was not useable when we booked. Wish it was. It is an older property and needs some maintenance. There is a fire station near by and the sirens kept us up all night. In addition the walls are thin. We heard the neighbors all night as well. We ended up leaving a night early because of this. No refund of course. We just could not have another night of that. There were always people in the parking lot drinking beer in their truck during our stay. Our room was near the grilling area and we heard them all night too. Not sure why they were not in the air conditioning inside? It was odd. Maybe they were not actually staying there? We paid about $200/ night. I wish I would have paid slightly more to stay at a nicer hotel.
