There may have been a better room available, however I didn't get it. Give up Richmond Suites, you can't even hotel anymore! 1. Changed rooms twice due to a broken security entrance door, strong odors of urine, fish, mildew and smoke in a non-smoking room. 2. The inconvenient need to acquire air freshener and new key cards 3 TIMES, THEN...

Stayed for almost a month on business. The room was nice and roomy and it was quieter than I thought it would be. The staff was courteous and helpful, especially housekeeping. I would stay here again.

The 1st room was nice, but the toilet wasn't bolted to the floor. They didn't have reg double beds, so they upgraded us to a Suite...I was a nightmare! The whole room was filthy, mold in bathroom, etc

I booked Richmond hotel thru Orbitz because they stated it was a 2.7 star. This hotel isn't even a one. Not only was the room disgusting they lied about the pet fee and we were woke up in the middle of the night by partying in the parking lot. When I addressed the staff they told me they already knew...

Horrible experience. Said on the web when I booked that it allowed pets for $25 a night. When I got there they demanded $50. Classic bait and switch. The rules also said if I left my dog alone in the room they would call animal control. I left immediately. Also not very clean or friendly, rude people.

These rooms do not have sofa beds, and if they do then the beds are in pitiful condition. They are putting regular sofas in the rooms so sofa beds are limited. Rooms are dusty and not maintained. Stains on the walls. Changed rooms 2x's then left

***This is NOT a 2.5 star hotel. I booked through Hotwire on their special deal where the hotel is revealed after purchase. In the Hotwire.com process, I was promised a clean room, of 2.5 star quality comparable to Best Westerns, La Quinta, etc. Service: When we arrived the woman at the counter appeared to be upset with us. Any questions...
