We used the auto clubs advertised package special of $174. 00 for two nights accommodations, a dinner for two, and two breakfasts for two. You can also find this special on their website. We knew that this was the American dollar price and that the Canadian dollar price would be higher. What we didn't know was that this was the cash only price and that even after the credit card charge of $222.00 was adjusted by the bank the actual charge would be about $200.00. The desk clerk said that we should have been told to bring cash for that price. You can expect a hard sell for tours and a magic show. We knew this was an older hotel and had no elevator. We requested the second floor so we wouldn't have to carry luggage up three flights. We later discovered that the second floor is on the same level as the lobby and we could have used the handicapped ramp entrance and gone through the lobby to our room instead of parking by the pool and struggling up the stairs as directed.
The room was musty smelling as we entered, putting on the air conditioner helped that. Bring shampoo! The only ammenity supplied is two very thin (bars?) soaps. Maybe you should bring your own pillow, too. We didn't know that pillows could be so lumpy! The blanket was pilly, the sheet thread bare thin, but as it was warm we thankfully didn't need either. Be prepared to pay for ice. A quarter will fill a very small ice bucket only half way. But the room glasses are real glass, a nice and unexpected touch.
The meals included are at Biffy's, right next door. The coffee is good. You are given a wide selection of choices. For a hearty meal the American breakfast is a good choice, with eggs, meat, potatoes, and toast. For the not so hungry, the omelets are smaller and served with toast only. The dinner portions are adequate, husband had a good salisbury steak, wife had chewy roast beef, both of us had old, mushy vegetables. After kicking up the soup with salt and pepper, that was good also.
As a long time restaurant worker and sanitation licensee, wife notices things. Both of the servers we had were fine, but a hostess needs sanitation lessons. At one meal, she picked up the napkin from the extra place setting at our table, dumped the silverware in the coffee mug and left it there. She then proceded to mop her face with the napkin and serve juice with her hands cupped over the glasses. At another meal, wife watched the same hostess play with her hair, eye shadow and lip gloss for a full five minutes while standing behind the cash register.
Despite the criticism, now that we know what to expect, we would take this package again. It is a good value, especially if your bring cash, and realize that you get what you pay for.
