When I tried to stay an extra night some serious price gouging took place and disgusted me so I left. Extra inflation on top of the inflation. Stay was good until this attempt at over charging.

"A disappointing hotel."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I frankly expected a much better experience. When I checked in I discovered that the room was one of the most poorly appointed I have had at this price level. There was no list of hotel services, local restaurants, shopping, the normal kind of information. I was told it was being reprinted. There was not even a pad and pen by the phone. The restaurant was closed and there was absolutely no food service. The sink in the bathroom would not hold water. The back (guest) entrance was marked "no smoking" but it was littered with butts and people, possibly employees, sat there smoking. All in all, it was not value for cost.
