Let’s state the obvious – this is an older hotel with dated décor and fixtures. But if you can get past that, the hotel is clean, comfortable and good value.
Stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed a lovely room with balcony overlooking the courtyard. Unfortunately the pool was undergoing maintenance at the time, but had it been in use, the view would’ve been even nicer than it was. There is a lounge, balcony area for receptions and such, and pool/hot tub all within a lush garden setting. It's too bad the pool and hot tub were out-of-service 'cause I'm sure it would've been very enjoyable to use.
Room was clean and spacious with 2 comfortable queen beds, a balcony, old-style tv, fridge/microwave, and coffee maker. Bathroom was small with dated (rose-coloured) toilet and tub, but the shower was great.
Complimentary wi-fi is offered throughout the hotel and worked well in the room. And a complimentary breakfast buffet is also included in the room rate, which is worth $11 per person (a great deal even on its own). As the restaurant is open to non-hotel guests as well, one suggestion would be to have staff monitor those with breakfast vouchers a little more closely as one could easily eat and run!
Breakfast was delicious and served in a pleasant eating area with friendly service from staff. Buffet included a wonderful selection of items such as fresh fruit (apples, bananas, pineapple, cantaloupe), yogurt and yogurt parfaits, scrambled eggs, omelette wraps, sausage, bacon, potatoes, cold cereals, oatmeal, breads, waffles, juice, coffee and tea.
Although breakfast is included in the room rate, hotel guests are still waited on by hard working staff and unlike many other guests, we made it a point to appreciate the service as we would at any other restaurant by leaving a gratuity.
Location of hotel is central to downtown and shopping/eating establishments, and parking is free and plentiful.
Despite some of the negative reviews, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would return.
