“Bathrooms are Bad!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The best thing that West Side Inn has is its staff. The front desk staff was always nice and did a good job with the long lines in the lobby. I was surprised that my ID wasn't checked when I checked in. That was alarming. The TV and air condition didn't work in the room. The room itself wasn't too bad, the mattresses seemed new, clean sheets and the furniture was in good condition. However, the bathroom was disgusting. The tiles in the shower were covered in mildew. The front of the hotel looked like a jungle. The grass and flowers were growing wildly and it looked more like an abandoned house than a hotel. To be fair, the hotel was £33 a night, so I didn't expect much. However, I do think that guests deserve clean bathrooms, regardless of price. Another good thing is the proximity to the city center. A five minute walk to the tram and then about fifteen minutes on the tram to the center.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a triple room on our backpacking holiday- the room was a good size, clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked fine and there were no problems at all. It is quite a walk from the centre but the number 2 tram goes all the way to the centre from just round the corner of the hotel so it was easy enough to get around. Overall we were very impressed and would stay here again.

we were disappointed that the wifi didn't work. the dirty marks on the carpet and the bathroom light not working devalued the room. A kettle would have made a big difference. the room was a good size and the bed was comfortable.

Spend a week at this Hotel with the family. It was very hot this week and the room didn't have aircondition so we needed to sleep with an open window, this ment constantly a smell of hash/tobacco was blowing In our room. There were constantly a lot of noise 24/7, banging doors, loud talking, by people being more or less stoned. The bathroom/toilet didn't get cleaned once, during our stay. So all In all, find anorher hotel
