“Desperately needing updating”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Our stay was 2 nights for a convention at Salt Palace, so the location was great - a very short 2 block walk. The price was ok, but it's looking pretty run-down. The room smelled heavily of air freshener, and was VERY dark (even after turning on all 4 lamps and ceiling light). To get it bright enough, we had to open the drapes, which was a little awkward since we were on the first floor backing onto the back parking lot. The air conditioner worked, but was pretty noisy. The locked door to get into our section of the hotel was causing problems on the first day, so it was left unlocked for the remainder of our stay. Not a very good safety feature!

I've had a fair amount of experience with free breakfasts in hotels, and have to say that this was by far my least favourite. There was nothing to eat but carbs. Not even peanut butter for the toast or bagels, and canned fruit in syrup. I was glad I had brought my portable plug-in cooler so I could eat my own breakfast on the second day and have cold water (since there wasn't any of that at breakfast either).

Overall, a pretty average stay.

Room Tip: Only 'efficiency' rooms have a refrigerator.

This hotel is average - what you would expect for the price we paid. The room was reasonably clean, although I found an empty pop bottle (not ours) under the armchair. The bathroom had a shower (no tub). The continental breakfast was ok. We were there for an exciting event so did not spend much time in our room anyways.

Room Tip: Some rooms have outdoor access. Others have indoor access.
