Funky smells and loud noises
Posted Apr 30, 2016
A++ for a friendly & accommodating staff! Two things, however, will keep me from staying there again. The rooms (and sometimes the halls) smell quite badly. My husband feels it is from smoking, I feel it's from moisture. The first room we had was unbearable (& the AC was loud and wasn't cooling well). The wardrobe also smelled, so I used it sparingly (there are only 3 small desk drawers for clothing/items so the wardrobe is a must) and didn't shut the doors. I thought I was getting used to it, but during the night when I rolled over in bed, it hit me again hard and I had to ask for a new room. The front desk attendant immediately moved us. The second room was much more spacious for the same price, but still had a smell (funky mixed with air freshener). It was more bearable, however, & the wardrobe didn't smell as bad. (Still have to air out my clothes I had stored in the wardrobes). This 2nd room was at the end of the hall right across from the vending room with the ice machine and across from the exit stairs. The ice machine noise was not a problem, but the doors to the vending room and stairs closed very hard with awful clangs. Luckily, I travel with earplugs. That's the first I've had to use them in a hotel though. Also, the nice breakfast area is ruined by the overbearing noise of the ice machine. It really should be shut off during breakfast hours (& no, that wouldn't hurt it; it would actually give the compressor a much-needed rest).
