Hotel only advantage is the LOCATION, but you could find hundreds of hotels in this area. Rooms are very small with bad odor, Air conditioning system is central so you could not adjust your room temperature. The hotel needs complete renovation, I don't recommend this hotel to anybody.

I ended up at Cartoon because... More

My husband and I stayed here the first weekend in October 2011. The hotel was part of a conference package. It was one of the worst hotel experiences of my life. The hotel itself was dirty and the daily 'cleaning' of the hotel room was as if no one was ever in the room. The morning breakfast was terrible too... More
