I stayed here for the 2 weeks over spring break. The reason plain and simple was the price. It was 6 to 7 times cheaper than any of the 3 star hotels down town for that period. In that context it was not a bad call and there were no horror stories to report. I have certainly paid more money and stayed in worse places. The room was spacious and clean with all the essentials including decent WiFi. The breakfast was simple enough and the dining area cramped but we just popped for a couple of juices and pastries and had them back at the room and found it was a handy option to have. The location was not as bad as you might think. There were some good restauraunts within walking distance. The trolley stop was about a 15 min walk away which meant getting downtown was a viable and cheap option even without a car.

That said there were issues. There was a door conjoined to the room next door which led to noise problems. You basically had to listen to tv as long as they were watching and woke up as soon as their kids were jumping around. Sleep quality was rather poor generally. I thought the fridge was going to explode 1 night with the sound coming out of it. Another morning I was woken at 7 by the sound of a guy walking around on the roof. Not once in 2 weeks did I turn in and sleep soundly for 8 hours.

In addition to the noise with the conjoined door one of the nights the room was filled with the smell of burning incense coming from under the door. Apparantly a sign of pot usage. Not to judge but I was in a non smoking room and even if they were not doing weed they should not have had smoke of any description. A problem easily rectified by smoke alarms that cannot be tampered with.

For a place that was somewhat remote the parking was a joke. 2 nights we came back after mid night and after cruising around the car park for 10 minutes we were finally told to park out front.  In the hotels defence this was mainly down to the parking of some of the people staying there. One
ignoramus in particular was strategically parked across 2 spots  for the entire time I was there but this person was by no means the only culprit. A simple solution is to take the licence plate of each guest and follow up with offenders

The only time I had to contact the front desk was to do with a blocked toilet. I informed them before leaving for the day and came back 9 hours later to find it in the same state. I had to call down then for a plunger and unblock it myself. It took 5 minutes to sort so no big deal but when you pay for a room you do not expect to be doing odd jobs too.

In summary it was a good call for the money I paid and I am probably being a bit harsh rating it a 2 but that is only in the context of ratings I have given to other hotels on here with fewer issues. They really could have a gem of a place without putting in too much effort.

We came as a group (14 rooms) for a school event. Our group was all families with kids ages 6-14. Rooms were clean and up-to-date. Beds were comfortable with nice white sheets. The pool and spa were great... open til 11pm and located towards the back with a very nice setting. It was nice cuz you didn't feel like you were annoying other guests when the kids were going crazy in the pool. Group b-fast was so-so; not bad, just straight forward pancakes or bagel and boring. But overall the everything was really great and all families (even the uptight, picky moms!) were very satisfied with the hotel. And it was a really great price! Definitely would stay with a group here again.

Room Tip: We stayed toward the front, which is closer to the freeway, but we did not hear the road noise at al...
