Stayed here for several nights. Was out of the hotel all day and well into the evening, so did not use any of the facilities except for a late room service meal the first night, and one quick swim in the small indoor pool. I had a room at the rear of the hotel, which was a hike when I arrived but proved very convenient once I figured out that I could park close to the room and use a rear entrance into the hotel, thus bypassing the lobby etc. In warmer weather I'd have made use of the fact that the room had a large sliding glass door permitting exit directly to the parking lot - not scenic but quite practical in some circumstances e.g. unloading luggage.
The room was serviceable: a bit dated,as others have mentioned, but it was fine for my purposes and in line with my expectations for the type of hotel etc. No complaints there.
I noticed, but did not use, a laundry room towards the back of the hotel - would be useful for longer stays or families.
All staff with whom I dealt were very helpful, whether it was delivering my meal, finding a map for me, telling me about nearby shops and restaurants, or even apologising because the bar was closed. As well, I checked out in a hurry and left them too much money, having forgotten that I'd pre-paid one night, but the person on duty realised what had happened and rang me immediately so that I could return and collect the excess.
