My stay at Drake
Old and in need of a lot of repair. Clean and good for a night's stay and hot shower.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We asked for our money back and didn't stay.
Orbitz confirmed room 10 which had a queen bed. Upon arrival we were told it was not available. The room we were given had two doubles in two rooms, it was not clean including dried coffee in the coffee maker and stained sheets. We asked for our money back and left an hour after we arrived. The manager was apologetic but besides dirty, one of the window screens had been cut off and the bathroom window wouldn't close. We just couldn't stay. This was a Friday night around 5pm and we had to drive a few hours to find a vacancy. Only time Orbitz has ever failed us. I could not recommend this place to anyone. In fact I would say avoid it. I believe we will get our money back.
