The lack of amenities, nonexistent 'breakfast' supplied as well as the cigarette burns in the linen weren't the worst of our experience. All of these things can be forgiven, it was the staff that were the problem. So rude and treated us like a problem they had to deal with from the beginning. Refused to help in regards to any...

The hotel is fairly clean. That's the only positive thing I find. Breakfast is poor (only cereal, pancakes and a terrible coffee), two days the milk was off and there was no coffee in the coffee machine... it gave us only water! We tried to wash some clothes and the laundry room wasn't working. The heater in the room is... More

The hotel is the typical american style, however the room is spacious and clean as well as the bathroom. Lacks some amenities such as tea/coffee facilities in the room. A couple of extra towels would have come in handy too. Breakfast is included in the price: cereals and waffles with coffee and juice. The staff at reception was friendly and... More

WiFi is only limited to 1 device per person, room is quite clean, lacked of parking space, staff is ok, breakfast is just cereal not the kind of breakfast you would expect. It is kind of pricey for that kind of quality,

What this hotel lacked in amenities was certainly not made up by the service of the front office staff... They were downright rude.. Small hotels offering limited amenities do not have to also offer 'limited' customer service.. I would strongly recommend that the Hotels Management reconsider what they want to have their clients experience when they approach that front desk.... More

Online booking was easy. Front desk clerk was polite and fast. Free wi-fi. My room was in the back building which was quite a hike to get to as you have to go uphill. Then it was upstairs so more climbing. Room was at the top of the stairs so I thought there would be a lot of noise from... More

I felt we paid too much for this room compared to others I stayed at in nicer areas for the same or just a bit more. The parking was a nightmare, the customer service was lacking, the breakfast area was too small to accommodate all the guests (not to mention they couldn't have gotten away with a cheaper breakfast, basic...

Terrible and useless customer service from the guy at the front desk. Like talking to a brick wall!! So rude and unfriendly. Mattress in room feels like it came from the dump. Not all the lights in the room work and this is room 216. Also my room phone rang randomly and no one spoke on the other end. Felt... More

Large, clean, bright rooms. Would definitely advise a car if you stay here as it's quite out of the way, and we've had to get taxis everywhere, wifi is sporadic, codes only last for 24 hours and even then sometimes you get chucked off before, breakfast is basic, cereal, coffee, juice and waffles, (not even tea!) and there is very...
