The hotel is okay for what you pay, but is only average. Could really use a sprucing up. The employees were good to deal with, but the hotel is a little dingy and my main complaint is that the non-smoking room sure smelled like a smoking room to me. Here's the trick, though. The restaurant in the same building--Victor's--is primo.... More

When you first see the hotel, it looks very nice as you enter the loby it's so elegant looking and then when you get to your rooms it looks like a motel 8!! Very sketchy! Dark hallways, and very confusing layout of the hotel also! Couldn't find anything we wanted. The heater in our room didn't work very well, either... More

Unfortunately I won this bid on Priceline - at a horrible price too! $95 a night for this dump. I made the mistake of lowering my star level as I was getting desperate to book 3 rooms in the summertime for a family trip. It is so outdated and dirty. Our room had a soaking wet old, musty carpet.

As you pull up to the hotel, while the neighbourhood seems really sketchy, the outside looks nice...but then you go inside and it's really run down and not very nice. The hallways are dark and dingy and even though it's a non-smoking hotel guests were still smoking (you could see a haze in the hallways) and made the rooms smell.... More

We were there for a conference. We ate at Victors and the food was really good. The only thing I was disappointed in was I did not have time to use the pool or hot tub. We had a good breakfast and staff was very friendly and helpful.
