Our room was dingy. The air conditioner/heater unit was extremely loud and did not blow any air. You'd think the cleaning crew or front desk staff would be aware of the fan situation and notify maintenance prior to guests checking in. Lack of air circulation resulted in a very stuffy and warm room. We kept the window open as long as possible, but closed and locked it when we tried to go go sleep. Had to turn on the radio for white noise. The toilet ran long after it was flushed. Bed was ok, but didn't make up for the rest of the room, overstuffed pillows, or the poor night's sleep we had. We didn't even bother with the breakfast.
Here's the kicker. There were motion sensors on the switches that control the lights in the room. When one of us got up in the middle of the night, all of the lights in the room and bathroom turned on. What's with that??
We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the airport and we got a "good deal" by pre-paying through a website. I'd gladly pay double for a decent room elsewhere.
