Took my daughter for an overnight stay at Cairn University. Myself and my other daughter stayed the night at Sleep Inn. Not impressed. Staff at front desk was nice but that is all.
My daughter and my self woke up with welts on our body. I am assuming it has to be bed bugs.
The chair in the dinner area had stains and they ran out of breakfast items like eggs and sausage at 7:30am and breakfast ends at 9am.
I booked through a third party and there was confusion about the room I booked. I had a confirmation for a double queen, but the clerk said that I had a king bed room. Since I have a family of four, I prefer the two queen beds, but he insisted that I booked a king. After showing my reservation, he somehow manufactured a double queen.
Hotel is dated, staff is generally friendly. Breakfast was average and the eating area is pretty small. They do make popcorn in the evening for guests, but they ran out before we got there on both nights.
It is about a 15 drive to Sesame Place, so if you like the brand, it's somewhat convenient (though there are hotels closer).
