This stay was last minute arrangement. The walk from the lobby to the room was confusing like a maze and scary. The room was dirty especially the floor. Further, I did not feel secure and safe staying here. Do not be swayed by the outlook of this hotel.

The good: It is not haunted. Yes, this is the classic 'damning with faint praise.' The bad: Where do I start? We came in a large group (about 40 of us), but that did not excuse them from taking nearly 2 hours to check all of us in. When we finally got our room, all ready to shower, to my... More

Stay in this hotel for one day due to a friend staying near this hotel. Hotel was clean the reception staff were polite and nice but the hotel have 2 wings so it is a bit complicated to reach my room. As for location, it is a bit off the main city. Will not stay again.

A reasonably priced hotel which gives value for the money spent. The rooms are neat although carpets were quite filthy and toilets quite small. ( deluxe room)The breakfast had a reasonable spread with dedicated parking lots for patrons. There were lifts for direct access to hotel room floors. Looking for a comfort stay with no frills, this will be just... More

Stayed for One night after attending wedding reception nearby. Opted for the Superior Room (No window). I didn't know there was such option for 3star hotels. Old hotel room was outdated. The only things I liked about the room was the shower. The TV in the room was poor. Breakfast buffet choice and taste is average.

Terrible room in the "new" wing. Full of bathroom mold. Hot water barely available in a piddling stream. Also, be careful, the old wing does not have WiFi, just cable Internet access. Worst issue cam at check in. The staff were hopeless, and totally inflexible. Bad experience overall. Breakfast was a good attempt.
