“Last resort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I had to book here as all others in Sheffield were full.

It was what you expect from a budget hotel. Clean, functional and okay.

The car park is across the main road. The breakfast was not really worth getting up for.

I'd stay again if needed, but for the same price others are better locally

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business
Thank alexgray-york

Where to begin... firstly, this is no longer a Park Inn by Radisson Hotel. We booked our overnight stay here back in december and booked direct on their website, we entered our visa details and expected that our room was paid for...we found out on the day that actually this was not the case, what would they have done if we didn't have the money to pay for this as we were of the understanding we had ALREADY paid!
Secondly, the location is terrible, fair enough it is off the main road but trying to find ANY car park is not easy, we parked in the NCP car park behind to find the car park is closed on a sunday so we would not have been able to get our car out to get home, the parking is £7.50 per 24 hours YET if you nip out then you have to PAY AGAIN!!!!!!
This hotel was apparently taken over on 1st october to become the "Sheffield Metropolitan" we were never informed of this hence why we could not find the hotel as there were no signs on the hotel building saying park inn, the receptionist did say that we were meant to have been told about the change but never received any communication from them.
The worst part of this hotel is the appearence, (please see the photos I have uploaded) it is shocking, beer bottles everywhere, rubbish everywhere, and there are no signs when you actually do park to say how to get into the building, e.g. Reception signs.

Once we entered the hotel the reception staff were helpful but after all of the above we decided we did not want to leave our car in the car park let alone stay in the building..so we cancelled our room

Overall dreadful hotel and area, would NOT recommend to ANYONE!!!

Room Tip: don't bother
