Descent Stay

by newchapter85

Overall, stay was good, with a few minor issues needing attention. Check-in at three in the afternoon took longer than it should; multiple guests checking in and some issues with room arrangements appeared to be responsible for the wait. The front-desk clerk was very helpful and friendly, along with the other staff I encountered. Overall the room was clean minus the soap dish and a few parts of the carpet needed some attention. Room was comfortable and quiet. The bar didn't have any tap beer, but had two taps. The fitness room didn't have any any water in the water cooler, and the sanitize wipes were all dry. Overall, nothing too major, just appeared that some corners were cut short to save money.

Location was king

This is a repackaging with some upgrades of the Holiday Inn at this location. This is an older property in a working class part of town so keep that in mind. It has new bedding, new bathrooms, room furniture looked a little past its prime. The motel permits smoking in some rooms, so if you are in that hallway, you will smell smoke. The room rate was very good. Free breakfast offered the basics but fresh and fine. Very clean breakfast room and clean rooms overall. Free internet access with password- reliable and speedy. I got the impression that this was a favored place for large groups on a budget. When we checked in on a Thursday i could see a lot of men that looked a little beat up. But then i learned that a large contingent of construction workers were being housed to break down a nearby refinery. They were fine, no noise or behavior problems - probably too tired!. Then on the weekend they cycled out and the hotel was the site of a local teen beauty pageant - sweet girls, their proud families. The parking lot was full. This was good location for us and we would not hesitate to stay again.
