The customer service at this hotel is the worst. When I Called to book a suite, I had spoken to 3 different members and neither wanted to book my reservation, which they never did. They continued to give me the run around saying I had to speak with a Manager just to book a suite. One of them actually felt...

When you first walk in to this place you are greeted by a very nice looking lobby all marble tile, high polish on the wood surfaces, and generally looks like a very nice place. This is a very deceptive preview of the place. Once you get beyond the lobby you begin to see the true face of this hotel. Many...

This was the 1st Choice Privilege hotel that I experienced the worst possible stay. This hotel is unsuitable to be staying in. The hotel staff checked me in by leaning over the keyboard, unfriendly. Only one slow elevator for 4 floors. When you get off the elevator smells like mildew and you almost can fall through the floor. Go into...

Before I begin, I want to state that I booked this direct through the Choice Hotel website, and requested one of their "nicer" rooms....The volume on the TV didn't work, so I called the front desk. They advised they would send maintenance. About an hour later the front desk called back to confirm the specific problem and advised they would...

What the heck are they running there? NO NO NO -- DO NOT STAY THERE. Go to Holiday Inn Express instead if you stay in the...

This hotel needs to be updated and cleaned. And, please stop using Fabuloso to clean. The elevator is too slow. The hotel was HOT, HOT, HOT in August!

The hotel elevator is the worst one that I've ever been on. Slower than molasses. Ice machines didnt work on all floors. Breakfast buffet was included. It was really good. It pool and hot tub was nice. The hotel had a general air of being a bit rundown and seedy. It seems like some people actually live there full time....
