“I'd stay again!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Clean rooms, great breakfast, and a super friendly and helpful staff (especially Olga)! Conveniently located. I stayed in a king room which was very spacious with a refrigerator and microwave, Easy to use internet. I'd stay again!

Only stayed one night at this hotel but would definitely plan a stay there again. The room was clean, spacious, updated, had everything we could possibly need/want. All staff we met were very helpful and friendly. Included breakfast was very good, offering many choices of hot and cold dishes and beverages. Also, the location was close to everything we had planned to see and do. We were very happy with our stay overall and would recommend it to our friends.

I stayed three nights over Labor Day weekend. I was able to check in early and had a choice of floors (guest rooms are on 2nd-4th floors). I chose the second floor.

The room was spacious, located in the back of the property, with a king bed and bathroom. The room is very well equipped with a fridge, microwave, Keurig style coffee maker, large flat screen TV and safe. There was a desk, chair, armchair and additional chair in the room. The bed had a very firm mattress which I prefer and extremely plump pillows that were frankly too plump to use so I didn't.

The bathroom was clean but the water pressure in the shower was low. I'm sure it was deliberate. The fixtures in the bathroom appear pretty new and are kept in good condition. e.g. no hairline cracks in the toilet, sink or bathtub.

The only major letdown of this hotel was the breakfast. The quality is more like a motel breakfast. You can make your own waffles and there is a vending machine that dispenses batter. There's bread, prepackaged muffins, English muffins, and a toasting machine. There's a vending machine for juices and another for coffee and hot water. There's plenty of teabags to choose from. There's also apples, oranges, single serving breakfast cereals, small cartons of milk, yoghurts. The only hot items are grits, and scrambled eggs and on one day sausage (links and patties) or bacon (two alternate days). The bacon rashers are so thin that when you pick them up with tongs, they crumble to pieces. The breakfast is nothing special and much like what I've had at a Motel 6 or Hampton Inn. i.e. lower quality for this kind of hotel.

The noise level at night is not too bad. The room was located at the back so there wasn't noise from the parking lot but the fridge is a little noisy (but aren't they always?). We didn't run the air conditioning at night so I can't say if that would cause problems during the night.

Location is good except it's hard to find when first arriving there. Look for the Kerr Drug sign! Also, if you want to turn left out of the hotel onto North Howe Street, come out at the traffic light otherwise you'd be stuck forever before being able to turn left. The hotel is about 7 minutes from the waterfront of Southport.

The hotel is in a somewhat interesting location of sharing a parking lot with a strip mall containing a bar/pub and some kind of clinician or medical practitioner. That might explain the relatively large parking lot outside the hotel.

There is a swimming pool but it is outdoor and I can't imagine having used that during the stay as it was so hot and sunny during the afternoons.

The staff are friendly enough and polite. I would stay here again but maybe at a rate that doesn't include breakfast (if this is possible).

Room Tip: I would select the back as it's away from the parking lot (and there's no parking at the bac...
