I'm rating my stay as 5* in the context of it being a 3* hotel. You must know what you are expecting when booking.
I found the reception staff to be very courteous, helpful and polite. The barman, Doug, is just what you want from a barman; friendly, helpful, knows his beers and able to provide some info on the local area!
The food was good - loved the chicken wings and Cheese Steak. Simple straightforward food and reasonably priced. Breakfast selection good with fresh pastry, omelettes, selection of bacon/sausage/eggs. Good coffee and fruit juices for $7. Great value.
Rooms are large and clean. Shower good. Bedding comfortable and clean. Bed very comfortable. Good facilities in room with large screen TV and coffee making facility. Good aircon. Ice machines clean and stocked on the floor. In room safe easy to operate and secure.
Pool area very clean and free for guests.
Great shuttle service to and from place of business. Simply book at Reception.
The area outside is a little intimidating but not much the hotel can do about that!
Overall really happy with the stay with the exception I didn't feel comfortable enough to explore the local area in the evenings.
