              the rooms ,location, price,the people. but it needs a food place inside hotel

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The entire staff we met had an excellent attitude. All were very helpful during a crisis with my inoperable car, loaning me their tools, taking me to pickup parts, giving me contacts for automobile services. Thanks to Chris and Kathy (front desk), Kyle and Paul (shuttle van) and of course Lee (maintenance), all genuinely helpful.

              The common areas of the hotel were nice, however the guestroom bathroom was old and needs extensive remodeling. The guestroom could use a fridge and a microwave. The pool was very clean when we arrived, however did occur a filtering maintenance problem later which closed the pool.

              Best and most accommodating shuttle service.

            • Single

              The Blake is obviously an older hotel with refurbished rooms, clean, convenient and safe. Service was very friendly and efficient.

              The breakfast area could do with some remodeling to bring it up to par with the standard of the rooms.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              We were given a corner room which was very large. With four of us in the room it made our weekend much more enjoyable. Also liked the room decor.

              Bar should open earlier.

            • Single
              4.2

              The hotel itself was beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

              Rooms need updating. No microwave/frig in rooms. Elevators old and very slow. Walking in the lobby is deceiving because it doesn't match the rooms.

            • Single
              7.4

              the room was really big

              the Internet was working very, very poorly!

            • Single
              4.6

              Staff were friendly and transportation/location was good for convention centre. Pool table in lobby was nice touch.

              Internet service!! You cant be a business hotel without good internet, it was wireless with a fee in the room and free in the lobby. However neither worked very well, even paying the $11/day in my room. It came and went and was painfully slow. The room wasnt clean, the lamp was covered in dust and the counters in the bathroom were marked and dirty. The bathroom in general was dated and bad. I booked a king room only to be told there were none when I arrived, I received a double. However the beds seemed smaller than that...i'm 5'6 and my feet hung out of the bottom. Pillows were uncomfortable, bed wasnt great either. They went for a mimimal trendy look that turned out bland and uncomfortable.

              I picked the Blake Hotel because of it's location, to the appointment, my wife and I had the next day, and for that reason only

              Place and confort

              poor breakfast. $10 for a lousy continental breakfast is too much. Similar hotels offer Internet for free

              Location

              The parking situation was terrible and the the quote of $8.00 on your sight is incorrect - its more like $10.00/day. This part was ridiculous and very much unexpected

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              The attempt to have high design

              Musty hotel rooms, so many things were broken including the stupid phone which did not have a button to call the front desk or anywhere else in the hotel, no hot water, hair dryer, ceiling had a large hole in the bathroom, dust you can cut thru with your finger in the room, food that was nothing remarkable for breakfast...why did I pay an extra $10 for that????

            • Couple
              7.4

              The bartender, Lupo, was great!

              Only decaf coffee in the room, comforter and curtains were stained

            • Group of friends
              4.2

              The staff was rude. The rooms were small and not clean. Lacked handicap ammenities my party needed. Looked like the hotel was trying to renovate in a very cheap way to look more luxurious than it actual is. For the price - not worth it and you have to pay to park. The buffet breakfast was a joke.

              The staff were helpful and courteous. The shuttle service was excellent.

              We had 4 people in our room and were only offered 2 vouchers for the breakfast. Breakfast should be included with the room. A person should not have to pay $10 for a continental breakfast.
