"Penrose Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
No hot water. We asked for non smoking was a smoke smelled room. No chairs in room. Elevator was inoperative so we carried baggage to fourth floor and we were promised second floor. By the way we are senior citizens!

"Unsatisfactory"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I want a refund for the room. The hotel was so bad, my family and I had to stay at another more expensive hotel. The elevator was broken and the customer service was terrible.

"It Fits The Price"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It appears to me that this is an old structure and that it is undergoing renovations even though it was not evident except from the sign in the lobby. The bathroom fan is too noisy and needs to be replaced. The air conditioning unit/heating system also seed to be old. That breakfast is included in this price seems to be a measure by the owners to attract clients. Since I did not spend much wake time there, it suited my needs and the price was good.

"Don't stay here"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Building in disarray. Undergoing remodeling. Rooms are in terrible condition. Outlets in room do not work. No light bulbs in any lamp, bed is like a rock. Bathroom gross (not sure it was even cleaned). Comforter had burn hole in it, elevator was shaky. Check-in took one hour! Housekeeping not available after 8, so if you need a light bulb you have to go get it yourself. Not worth 130.00 at all!

"Thanks for the feedback. I will definitely use your site in the future. This was my first time setting up a conference for a government agency so I have learned a lot. By having the hotels bid for business or at least advise if they could accommodate was a HUGE time saver. I started by throwing darts at hotels in certain locations and cold calling them before I found your website! I really appreciate yours and the teams help." C.B. - Denver, CO
