2/10 Poor

……at least it didn’t have bed bugs.
As a point of reference I have travelled so much in the last 30 years for both business, pleasure and family that two separate properties have recognized me with a gift for over 100 stays. When you’re on the road as much as I am, you will undoubtedly end up with horror stories. This hotel, was without a doubt the worst in all my travel. When you look at the pics online it presented as a charming old school small town hotel. The surrounding area is wonderful with theatres and restaurants and loads of small town charm, but the second you walk through the hotel doors you know you’ve made a mistake. Firstly door is locked during all hours so you have to phone a number to get someone to let you in. Once inside the desk clerk couldn’t find my reservation, I showed her my confirm and she trusted me so gave me a room on 7. The elevator from the lobby is old, poorly maintained and dirty, nobody would feel safe. When I got to the room there was all kinds of waste in the garbage cans and some poop left on the sides of the toilet from last guest. The shower, which I didn’t use, had visible mold on the tiles. The wifi and TV service were down. I pulled back the sheets and lifted mattress to look for bed bugs, thankfully none. So the best thing I can say about this property is it doesn’t have bugs in room 704. I wouldn’t feel comfortable letting my family or friends stay at this property.

4/10 Fair

We didn't actually stay here in the end. The A/C wasn't working and they were good enough to offer a refund.After viewing the room we decided to take them up on the offer. Th room is not as pleasant as it looks in the pictures. It's all kind of old and stale and the elevator didn't exactly give us confidence. Also note that the "Free self parking on site" is actually a public lot that is only free after 5pm.

Great location. Have stayed here before prior to the pandemic and it was wonderful, I saw some mixed reviews recently but thought it was due to covid. I wish I had trusted them. It appears they are under new ownership. We requested a king bed with pullout sofa (2 people sharing a room and they don’t offer a double bed option). We only got a queen- no king’s available. No extra pillows in the room. Uncomfortable mattress and the mattress pad was so thin and worn, it was falling apart. One chair for sitting in the room. Glasses had what I hope are water marks and not dirt- didn’t use any appliances. It just didn’t “feel” very clean if that makes sense. It didn’t help that a travel shampoo left for us was only half full. Air conditioning was broken and a window was open in the room with rain coming in when we arrived (a panel was missing so you couldn’t close the window). Luckily the weather was cool. Used to love the continental breakfast but they now have zero options- I get it’s covid but there are lots of ways to offer safe coffee, juice, etc. No Directions and no one was available upon check out. It felt odd just setting keys on a counter and walking out, but that’s what others were doing so we did too. I’d trust the reviews and wait until they are under new ownership or their is evidence the new management changes things up and provides the quality stay The Parker Inn was once known for. Trust the

8/10 Very good

Customer service was excellent. Wonderfully kind and helpful. Perfect location to access Proctor Theater. Hotel has recently changed owners. It is a bit in flux. Sheets were ill- fitting, bed and pillow were hard, and there was no air conditioning. Temp was comfortable, but loud street noise and lights made it difficult to sleep while the windows were open. Toilet was very dirty.
