- Clean Rooms. No complaints here. The housekeepers were also very friendly.
- Very reasonable rate for the area.
- Lots of restaurants within walking distance and the outlet mall is right next door.
- Room was not cleaned when we checked in. We had to wait in the parking lot for a half hour. Not what I wanted to do after a long day's work.
- The front desk clerk was less than hospitable. (see "The Ugly")
- Fire alarm for the entire hotel roars to life for a half hour around 1am. No fire but staff were unable to shut it off.
After coming back to the hotel after dinner, we notice at least 3 police cars parked in front of the lobby. We waited, at a distance, to see what all of the fuss was all about. Thirty minutes pass before the police emerge with the front desk clerk in handcuffs and put him in the back seat of a patrol car. It was very upsetting to see because we have no idea what he is being arrested for but with three patrol cars responding, it couldn't have been good. who knows what goes on at this hotel? When I asked about the incident, the check out clerk said she couldn't comment on it.
Overall, I can't risk my personal safety over the value of this hotel. As travelers, we expect to feel secure when we check in. When staff are involved in illegal activities, our safety is severely compromised. I strongly advise you against staying at this hotel.
