We are on a road trip & our hotels have been organised for us by Tailor Made. Unfortunately they booked us in here, we don't normally complain but the only way I can describe this hotel is like student digs that smell of TCP. Thick layers of paint are trying to cover up the shabbiness of the place. We were given a room facing a wall & to be fair on the guy on the front desk he did move us to one of the best rooms they have....this had a massive AC duct in a cupboard, stains on the bed & the room was extremely noisy. We were out of there by 5am with no sleep. The outside of the building looks great, the inside is shabby.
