No complaints. Great breakfast. The rooms are what they are - beds, tvs and bathrooms. I was worried about the noise that some of the other reviewers mentioned. We didn't hear a peep. Great pub downstairs. A 3 minute walk from the train, and 6 minutes across the bridge to the the downtown.

Looks shabby and a little seedy from the outside, but the service and the rooms were wonderful for the price and the location. I would go there again. The staff was nice. There is a local's bar next to the hotel and the hotel has a chair lift for disabled guests.

The bed was super comfortable as well. The wifi signal was really strong. It can get a bit loud at night as there's a bar next door,... More

There's a Domino's Pizza Hut across the street that doesn't stop serving until 3 in the morning jesus I have never experienced a noise level like it,the shouting and screaming goes on until about 4.30 to 5 o'clock in the morning we...
