It was simple math; 2 nights there for essentially the same price as one night at the casino.
Pros: comfy beds, friendly staff. The shuttle operating between the hotel and the casino was nice and the driver was a very nice and courteous gentleman.
Cons: lots of late night noise in the hallways. The rooms were a little dated and the bathroom could use a more-than-cursory cleaning.
We would also like to applaud the gentleman in the room next to us. His female companion was exceptionally vocal.
The place was clean but very old and very loud. Lots of riff raff around to make you uncomfortable and want to walk around the building to avoid. But it was cheap and you get what you pay for.
For how clean it was there were still bugs because the door led to the outside and was not properly sealed.
My room was clean, but some things could be improved. The alarm clock was unplugged. I had to move the mattresses on the 2nd bed to get to an electrical plug for it. There is no wall switch to turn on any of the lights in the room area. So you turn on lights at the sink when you enter the room, then you walk through a dark room to find individual switches for each of the lights. TVs are nice but there is only a guide showing what channels are available. There is ni guide for what is showing on any of the channels. There are only small paper cups available in the room. Hot coffee from the room coffee maker and my soda leaks almost immediately. The room arrangement of desk, desk chair and chair was not very comfortable snd should be rearranged. The room sleeps 4 but only seats 2. The room had 2 very small trash cans but needs at least 1 medium trash can. There was a maid's cart in the hall in front of an open maid's room during my entire stay. The cart had dirty and clean towels and supplies on it at all times. All if the staff members I came in contacts with were very nice and professional but should have been wearing a shirt with some kind of Baymont identification so you would know they are staff.
Was in town for business at the same time of the NJCAA Regional Baseball Tournament. The desk staff let me know that 3 teams were staying at the hotel, but made special effort to place me in as quiet a corner of the hotel as possible.
The room was clean and very comfortable...
