This hotel needs an update. I'm sure they're aware and hear this all the time, but it's just the 1st thing that hits you from the time you enter, to when you go up the elevator, to when you enter your room. During check in, the front desk clerk mentioned that too many people didn't want to work, and I immediately responded that they probably needed higher pay. But when you charge so little for your room rate, it might be tough to pay higher wages. And honestly, if I had to pay more than I did for the room, I'd have been pretty mad about it. It's a vicious cycle. They need to update, so they can charge more for their rooms, and so they can have more reliable/happier staff. ::shrugs::
The bed was comfortable for me, but not for my husband. (He said it was too hard.) We had an executive king room which had a decent amount of space, including a couch and a desk. The bathroom door was broken and wouldn't fully close unless something was propped against it. The shower curtain made me sad. The shower faucet seemed on the verge of giving up the ghost. The bar was understaffed for a night where there was an event happening next door. A friend seemed to enjoy the indoor pool (which was open til midnight). Front desk folks were friendly and very helpful. Parking seems plentiful. Location is decent...very close to the capitol building and downtown area. I would stay here again if necessity called for it, but will choose other hotels over it in the future.
