First I will tell you that the hotel location is wonderfully located, the price is not bad for the location, we paid $159 a night, the room we stayed in was very clean (we did the bed bug check), the staff were cordial, the breakfast was included in the price (but they forgot to tell us about it and we...

Arrived at the hotel and our two rooms were not ready because they were trying to accommodate us to be near each other on the same floor. Thought that was very considerate as we had not thought to ask for that. Desk staff were friendly and helpful with directions. First impression....This hotel has seen better days!!! But the halls, stairways... More

Not worth the $160 a night plus $25 parking, total rip off. Rooms very old. Just not a nice clean hotel, breakfast was a joke.

Very good location, lovely clean sheets/towels and friendly staff all positives, but the hotel is very worn, grubby carpet (you want to keep your shoes on) in desperate need of a refurb and an airing!!!

No value for money, I was given a room in the 8th floor. Room stinks, Bathroom/commode had stains, floor was not clean, overall maintenance of the floor and the room sucks. On top of all the room was over charged. I would never visit this place or never recommend this hotel. Only good thing about the hotel was the staff,... More

Sorry to hear you were not very pleased with your room. I am glad to hear the staff were helpful and hope they offered a room change. This hotel will be undergoing a major renovation/development plan that will address some of the deficiencies you mentioned. Again, my apologies for not meeting your expectations. More
