No smoking rooms are available by it doesn't do much when the room next door has smoking allowed or several rooms nearby for that matter.
The positive - The room was clean. I didn't hear any air traffic at night.
The 2 rating is for the smoke smell

Hmm. I think the worst part of all of this was the amount of money I paid for this room. It was derby weekend, yet I was not in town for the derby. I'm actually not a fan at all of horse racing, but that's a whole other tale. I was in town to attend a concert and needed a hotel room for one night. I'm glad I at least had the sense to check a few months out because even then, I couldn't find one single other hotel room and if I did, the rate was even higher than the like $220 I paid to stay here. It's usually like $70 according to the website. So I was quite sour about that, but glad to have a place to lay my wary head. Oh, and I travel with my dog, so I needed a pet friendly place, which this is, and for that I am grateful.
So anyway, upon arrival, I was pretty horrified by the surrounding area. I probably wouldn't have cared that much if I wasn't about to leave my dog alone here for a couple of hours while I attended the concert. I worried about her the entire time. When I got back, she was alive and well, so that was a relief.
About the room though... it REEKED like smoke. Like, so bad I could barely breathe. I have terrible allergies and it was miserable being in there inhaling that. The remote to the tv didn't work, it had to be controlled from the buttons on the unit itself. I probably wouldn't have turned the tv on at all, but I always leave cartoons on for my dog. I am weird. We also had a lovely view of what appeared to be a public housing project out the window. One of the chairs (was there more than one, I can't remember...) had a stain on it, the carpet had a few snags. I slept in my clothes and didn't take a shower or brush my teeth in the morning. The water in the sink had an odd color tinge to it.
There didn't seem to be an elevator, or if there was, I never found it. The stairwell reeked like a combination of strong cleaning product and piss. It was quiet though, which was nice. Also, I liked that it had a microwave (though I didn't use it) and good sized mini fridge. I didn't make it downstairs in time for breakfast in the morning, so I can't say anything about that.
Had I paid under $100, I'd likely have been much more satisfied. The fact that I paid what I paid, I wanted to cry.
