“So So Lodging: Room For Improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The hotel is brand new, and looked great from the outside. Unfortunately, the handle on the toilet in my room was broken. It was late before I realized the toilet did not work properly, so I advised the front desk at check out.

The bed felt great. My hotel invoice needed correction. When I arrived and handed my Platinum Elite Card to the front desk, I was not recognized for being a member of the Priority Club. Amongst all the IHG hotels at which I have stayed, this one would rank in the bottom one-third.

Very sorry about the toilet issue you had with your room. I will be emailing you regarding the survey you submitted to us. Hope we can accomodate you again in town if you are here again.

Sincerely,

It's cheap but an ok place to stay. The rooms are clean and have lots of room with all the kitchen stuff you need. There isn't a bar and no housekeeping during your stay. But that's normal for this chain. Towels and sheets are available from reception.

I'm staying here now. My shower set off the smoke detector this morning! It was quite annoying!! This hotel is quite nice otherwise. The staff is very helpful, and friendly. They know where to get the seafood!
