8/10 Very good

Fun Hotel
We returned to this hotel again after staying a few times five or so years ago. Great location, really nice staff. Beds are super comfortable. Parking is easy. I don't care for the modern, doorless showers - and the showers could use some type of better shelving or tray to hold soap and shampoo. This is only a minor complaint. Overall the hotel is fantastic and I look forward to staying again.

2/10 Poor

Don't stay here - better hotels around the corner.
Waited at front desk at 10:15pm for over 10 minutes until a staff member showed up to check me in and give me keys. I went to my room - keys didn't work. Came back downstairs - told him problem and he said he was off the clock and someone else would help me. Next staff member ran keys again and these also did not work. Came back down and told him - he said lock was probably broken. He went upstairs to check - came back and confirmed lock was broken but no one available at that time (by now 10:45 pm). First staff member came BACK in and was asked for help - he said all rooms were sold out. Not helpful. Second staff member called someone, and then spent 10 minutes staring at a screen and told me they'd get me into a room. At that point - why not just find the empty room and give me a key? Finally he gave me keys to a different room - I went upstairs and was able to enter. This room's thermostat was set to 55 degrees! And the room smelled like vomit. I turned the AC off and ignored the smell and fell asleep. Also one of the small tables had a broken leg and was tipped over on the floor. At 8am, front desk called and said I needed to change rooms - when I asked why I couldn't just stay in the room they gave me, they said it was booked! Like what difference does it make - the room I changed to was exactly the same as the one I had been in. I will never stay here again. 21C, the Durham, and Marriott are all in the same area - stay at one of those hotels instead.
