We stayed one night, $77 total with tax. It was fine. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Good location. The room was clean and an average size. Bed and pillows comfy. Some negatives: there is no breakfast (the "free" breakfast offer is a $5 voucher for two people to SHARE at Beef O Brady's next door, which starts at 7:30 - way too late for business people). There isn't even coffee in the reception area. The bathroom was smaller than usual and the light was dim - the bulb took around 10 minutes to warm up each time it was turned on. Also, the window unit was not blowing cool enough for us. We both were hot all night even though it was on max cool. Maybe the people in the room below we're blasting their heat. Anyways, it was okay but next time we will probably try a different hotel.
