Originally I was inclined to rate this hotel a 4. However, by end of visit I lowered to a 3.
Rooms are large, bed was very comfortable, plenty of hot water, ceilings high, TV OK.
Room wise I did not have any major issue.
Hotel in general was clean.
Breakfast area was much smaller than other BW hotels.
I would describe the overall breakfast as "below average"
There was no fresh fruit, unusual for a BW.
The coffee was poor, it was made cup by cup out of a machine, when you pushed a button.
No hard boiled eggs, no bagels, no butter, no cream cheese.
Oatmeal was in packets.
Standard microwave type eggs, & meat that many hotels have,
Biggest surprise, was that there are multiple signs posted in breakfast area telling you, you are NOT allowed to bring any breakfast items to rooms.
I have never been to a BW (or any other hotel ) that has such a prohibition.
I went to front desk and asked to speak to a Manager.
Manager told me, food is not allowed because of their "policy".
I found out later from breakfast person, that he was also the Owner.
I asked the Manager / Owner why they had such a policy. He just explained, that at another hotel he was at, he had "problems".
I asked why would he "punish" all guests, because a few might cause problems. Why not just penalize / charge someone that possibly causes damage etc., on exception basis.
I tried very nicely to explain, that my wife like others, was tired, as we travelled a lot the previous day, and she chose to sleep rather than making the 930 breakfast cutoff time.
In addition there are so few tables in the small breakfast area, I can't imagine there being enough space, for guests at certain times.
Manager gave me "permission" to bring coffee and 2 slices of toast, back to my wife in the room.
I laughed to myself. It reminded me of Seinfeld episode, where the "Soup Nazi" told Elaine, she could not have soup, and had to get off the line.
The TA reviews here don't match my experience. I just noticed many were submitted by BW. Problem with those, is that they only probably submit good reviews. I reread some reviews, and I noticed someone else mentioned the 'prohibition'.
I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS HOTEL, OR ANY OTHER HOTEL THAT TELLS ME I CAN NOT BRING FOOD BACK TO THE ROOM.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL, EVEN THOUGH I HAD NO PROBLEM WITH THE ROOM, OR HOTEL , IN GENERAL, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE BREAKFAST AND CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS OF OWNER. less
