    This is a budget hotel. If you're expecting something fancy, keep on looking. The breakfast was good, although I wish that I had microwaved the biscuits. The staff was very friendly. And, for a budget hotel, the bed was very comfortable.

    Good for a 1 night stop over. Staff was very pleasant. Room was bit run down. Strange odor in hallway. Didn't feel safe using laundry facility, there is a sitting room outside of the laundry room with guys drinking.
