“Not Great”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2005

Booked a week in advance but upon arrival the manager informed us that unforturnately they didn't have any "good" rooms left. Room they put us in had a view of a cement Wall eight feet away, which I think is the same for all of the rooms in the back of the hotel. Air Conditioner was noisy and if you turned it off and opened the window you listened to everybody elses Air Conditioner. Cocktail hr. and breakfast were OK but typical plastic and styrofoam. Location was nice access to town, but being so close to the train also provides you with soot on your car and choking smoke if the wind doesn't blow right. Shower was bad, bathroom small. Three seperate times we could not get into our room and had to get a new Key card. Would not stay here again unless I could be guarenteed a room with a balcony and even then I don't think it is worth the money.

Stayed October 2005
