Nice Motel-Clean”

Everything was very nice except a couple of minor issues worth noting. First the television was terrible. Kept tiling. Very distracting and hard to watch. Second shower curtain too short and smelly. Need to replace nasty shower curtain! Beds were great! Room was clean and very nice. Overall a very nice room for the night! I would recommend the Kenilworth!

Customer for Life..... ”

I've left a review on other sites like TripAdvisor, etc over the years and I must say, the experience I have while staying at this boutique hotel is exceptional. From the front desk, to the housekeepers, everyone is awesome. My room was just what I needed. Clean, modern, comfortable, and very relaxing. The microwave and mini frig helped me. The in room iron and ironing board were a life saver. The mattress was more comfortable than the mattress in my own home! I really appreciate the extra effort they make in trying to make guests have an enjoyable stay! Thanks!

My biggest disappointment was the washcloths in particular were not clean. Some actually had stains ”

The staff was very pleasant The facility had a sign posted on the back of the bathroom door saying please reuse towel ??? That’s just nasty An automatic charge of $100 for if Amenities are used was automatically billed without explanation, I found that unprofessional. It was truly a disappointment because this particular visit was because of an engagement party that we intended to use the same hotel for the wedding in April and had 100 people coming from out of town for two days so we were going to book pretty much the hotel as possible for as many rooms as they had available but not after seeing the dirty linens that was too much

Mostly Everything was great. The only problem I had with them is that they wanted us to reuse or towels. I requested with the cleaning lady to have them changed and I still came back to the same old towels to dry off with.

The hotel is decent enough with pleasant staff. Some of the hallways smelled of smoke but our room was clean. Continental breakfast was nice but could use some fruit selections.

Cheaper during holiday

I really wanted cancel but they wouldn't let me even though I just booked it. There probably would've been a thousand other people who would take the hotel. They also would not let me switch to another day or another hotel. I did not like that but what can I say it was cheap.

Don't stay here”

It was close to the class I was attending

For the value the room should have been priced at about $60. the quilts were frayed, the sink was held up by wooden sticks, the carpets were covered with plastic, the heat was noisy and too hot even on the lowest setting and the room was too cold without the heat on. My friend spent 2 nights in a different room - same experience. Only worse - the second night there was a wedding - noise until 4AM. When she called front desk to complain the staff barely apologized, did not offer her a refund or a "rain check" for another time.

Acceptable”

I did not rare it favorably due to the fact there was no housekeeping. I had to take out my own trash and even had to vacuum cause the room was getting dirty. You had to eat in your room cause the lounge area was closed. By the end of my stay the toilet bowl was disgusting. I feel I am entitled to partial refund.
