I stayed here for just one night, bathroom area felt dirty. TV was very outdated and so were the common areas. Bed was clean and comfortable.

The non smoking room smelled like a bingo hall. It was marginally clean overall. You get what you pay for but even so this was a little over priced for the quality of room.
