Good For a Night's Rest Only
Posted May 12, 2015
The hotel was grossly overpriced for the accommodations. We selected it only because it was a name I recognized and have used in the past, and only one of a few left to book for the Georgia Southern graduation.
At first sight it was apparent that it was small and dated, which has never been a deal breaker. The main issue was the lack of cleanliness; the carpeting was filthy. After showering and walking around the room, my feet became dirty. We must have missed the cleaning window by having our "do not disturb" sign on the room until noon. When we retuned later in the evening, the room was as we had left it. Normally this would not be a problem, but that meant we didn't have fresh towels. On other hotel stays, we do use the towels more than once, but are usually given hand towels and more than one wash cloth. It was an issue on this visit.
The chairs are not comfortable. The air conditioning unit was located next to the sink so getting ready was uncomfortable because of the blowing air. The bed was okay but the pillows were on the very soft side. The toilet did not flush well and the shower faucet was wobbly. There was plenty of hot water, though.
It is an excellent location; the university is extremely close and restaurants were within walking distance. We did not use the pool and can't comment on that.
There was no Iran in the room and could be communicated somewhere on the site so travelers can be prepared. Luckily our granddaughter was able to lend us hers.
