I recently stayed 3 nights in a private room. There is no soundproofing in these "private" rooms and the walls are paper-thin, Got very little sleep....it felt like the four private rooms were just one big dorm. On the first night, there was a baby crying at 4:00am which kept everyone awake and that was the end of my nights sleep (even with ear plugs!). The next two nights, it was people talking loudly and someone that kept slamming their door half the night with mad sprints to the washroom (I am guessing!). I would have slept better probably in an actual dorm room!! Not good value for $66 per night...paid $198 for what? I can stay downtown for $76 each night and actually get some sleep!! Phoning in to make reservations, the staff act impatient and bored with their job. The only good thing is the nice location by the sandy beach.
