Very nice hotel, rooms & facility very clean. Not many people there when I stayed. They had a problem with the fire alarm system the last night I was there and they booked me a room at another hotel and paid for it.

I stayed there when I came to Motaku 2014 and Ahn!Con 2015. I was satisfied with the room until I saw a piece of dark hair in the tub during my stay in the summer 2014. BUT it was still great overall. When I came back in January 2015, I ended up with a double but the room was still... More

It's a basic hotel, good for small conventions (which is why I find myself there once or twice a year). The bar / lounge was understaffed and busy, but the two women there worked... More

Front desk people not very friendly on check in/Check out. Only helpful one was when we had to move rooms three times because there was no hot water in any of them or things like the phone and the faucet were broken. In general the hotel was freezing. All the thermostats in the halls that I saw were set at... More

The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are so so. We stayed in a double Queen and the beds were creaky and extremely uncomfortable, I ended up pushing together the two big chairs in the room and sleeping on them, which was much more comfy than the bed. The bathroom works but it was hard to get the temperature... More

I would have rated this hotel higher, but the service at the front desk when I checked out was awful. The girl working was hiding out in the back (with a child back there too) and appeared to be hung over or ill.
