We selected this hotel as we got a good deal with breakfast and dinner included. The room was clean and neat. We asked for an extended check out and got a positive response and a extended checkout. The staff was good and the food was good too. The desk staff was little amateur as it did not billed me correctly,... More

I stayed there for 2 nights, was a nice place to stay. Hotel and rooms were clean. But the staff and the room service wasnt very helpful and efficient. Very slow room service, had to call more than twice to get drinking water and other such items. This happened more than once. Anyways, I would still want to stay there;... More
