ok...it was cheap. But there's cheap and there's CHEAP! Not a place I'm yearning to return to.
It took 25 minutes to check in as there was only one person working. The room was "executive"....hmmmmm....very dusty, bathroom had the dreaded hair in the bath syndrome, very run down and in need of lots of repair and redecoration. Desk weeeny, desk chair huge. Room huge, bathroom weeny. Windows grimy, very noisy too because of single glazing (in a city??).
We went out as soon as possible.
Got back, room looked slightly more inviting in the dark. Beds are quite small with really mean bedding and pillows. Husband took the 8 year old, I the seven year old but we still didnt really have enough bedding.
In the morning the shower worked. Which was good. I had to clean the bath before I stepped into it though. Not so good. Towels were teeny, rough and thin. And there were only 2 for 4 of us.
Breakfast was interesting. Fruit was plastic and for display only! Hilarious!!! Teeny 2 slice toaster for everyones use, white bread, muffins and croissant. OK. VERY miserable woman on duty who was mumbling and grumbling and generally not happy.
Oh joy......checkout!!!! lets get outta here!!!!!!!!!
