Not quite as portrayed

Was disappointed in our stay. To start with, the evening front desk person is not the least bit friendly. When we checked in, we were informed that there was a $100 hold on our credit card for each key issued. Then we were told that it would cost extra if we wanted our room cleaned because we were staying more than 1 night. To get a total room clean, they would charge us $50! When we entered our room, we were about knocked over with the strong smell of cleaning fluids. As I have allergies, this was not pleasant. The room had no coffee machine and was pretty bare bones. The beds was hard and the pillows were flat. Our bathroom was strangely configured. Not only was it tiny, but the toilet backed up to the single sink! In the morning, they had a coffee machine downstairs and an electric kettle if you wanted hot tea. They only offered these until 9 am. The lobby was tiny. No TV, no computer for the guests to use. The parking lot is very small, so it was difficult to find parking. There is no elevator, so you have to lug your baggage up a pretty narrow stairway if you're unfortunate enough to be put on the second floor. All in all, not a great stay.

Thank you for your review. We are sad to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. We do have a key deposit, but it is only a hold on the credit card. As long as they keys (we use physical keys) are returned and there is no damage done, it is released. Daily housekeeping is not included in the room cost as we wish to offer guests the cheapest rate possible. Extra's like housekeeping are an extra cost but only to the guests that wish to add these services on. A bed change is $10 and a full clean is $25. We apologize that your allergies were affected by the cleaning solutions. We usually do not have this complaint. We will take your feedback under consideration regarding the beds and pillows and will look into what can be replaced. We do offer complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby through the day. We usually only keep it running/made for as long as guests are wanting it but we are happy to make a fresh pot after that upon request. We are an economy style hotel so we do not offer extra services like a guest computer, most hotels do not have TV's in the lobby but they are of course in the rooms. There are also amenities a short walk away for guests that need a business center. Have a great Autumn!
