I traveled solo and stayed for 2 nights. I had a king bed, city view, very clean. I was across from the laundry room, which I couldn't hear because my room was also next to the ventilation system, so it sounded like I was listening to a constant dryer running. I wasn't there to gaze from my balcony, I was...

Location was great, price was decent, their "store" had barely anything on the shelves. When we went to eat at the restaurant there were several employees standing around while the waiter ran around trying to take care of everyone inside and out on the deck....no wonder he seemed stressed. Our sheets were not changed the whole time we were there!...

I understand that things can happen-- a boiler can go down & the hot water can get turned off. That said, the hotel is not so clean, not very nice & in need of renovation. The bathroom was sub-par & the my guestroom was quite small. It's a shame because the location is great.

Visited this hotel for one evening with my girlfriend. Was told there wasn't any hot water upon check in. Was told by the front staff there wouldn't be any hot water any time soon. Negotiated with reception staff and were promised 50% off if we continued our stay. Beds were terrible. The mattresses are so old you roll into the...

This was our second stay here but the first since they were no longer affiliated with Best Western. The room was comfortable and quite with a nice balcony overlooking the bay.

No hot water for showers. When we reported the problem they claimed it was being worked on and made promises of 25% off in compensation. We went three days without hot water.
