This hotel is nothing to write home about, but it was a functional hotel that didn't do anything to offend. We had a clean room with a king sized bed, and there was a coffee maker, mini-fridge, and microwave oven available for use. The TV offered basic cable TV fare, so don't expect to get any PPV entertainment. The bathroom was roomy and clean, but the towels provided were thin and small; not what you would offer guests in your own home. The hotel website states there is free wireless internet, and there is also a wired port as well. Not sure about the wireless access, as what I thought was the hotel network required a network key. I didn't bother asking since the motel across the street had an unsecured network that I took advantage of. There was free parking with a couple of parkade levels that don't connect to each other, and is hard to pick up when driving.
I was told by family that the hotel was opened a couple of years ago. The surrounding area doesn't look that hospitable, but the area is safe.
