Street music was insanely loud, and my pet peeve - there was only a half a toilet paper roll upon arrival. I heard another guest asking for toilet paper, so it seems to be an oversight of cleaning staff.

Melissa, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
The hotel seemed very nice at first, but upon closer inspection it was not cleaned properly. The room we stayed in had a jacuzzi tub but it was filthy. I didn’t realize how dirty it was until I got in because I didn’t have my glasses on. When I turned the jets on it instantly smelled musty. Drained the tub and realized the jets and other hardware for the tub were grimey. The shower floor was also stained with what I assume is water stains. I’m a bit of a clean freak, especially when it comes to the bathroom. Just so disappointed. Why have these updated bathrooms if you aren’t going to clean them properly.

The rooms are clean. It’s downtown which is great for walking but it is a bit noisy at night (sirens, music, people).

Good 6.0
Receptionist was fantastic. Helpful and nice. The lobby, hallway sadly smelled of sewage. Room was very large, clean and very nice. No odor in room. When going out odor was strong. I decided not to stay at hotel. I booked another room at the Marriott down the street.

The room size was great as well as the proximity to campus. We didn't like the fould smell of the common areas and teh parking garage was too small.
