            I paid for a non-smoking room and they gave me a smoking room but smelled badly of stale cigarettes, when I asked for another room they said it wasn't guaranteed through Booked.net,but I should them the online reservation that stated strictly non smoking he replied we don't have any other rooms available, which was false. I told them I would like one by the next day or I would be checking out. After two days there was no respond to my request so I checked out and found another. Secondly the smoke detector in the room was there but no battery or battery cover.

            As a business it is clearly being run badly. Sensation of dirtiness, furniture in the room broken and not even removed. The bath curtain torn up. Saw a cockroach in the bathroom at night. Ah! the elevator is a mortal trap: I got stuck 3 times after the door was blocked.

            Friendly and courteous staff that are really helpful.

            No shop close by - I have a problem walking

            9.2

            Loved the rooms and the breakfast!

            Ironing boards downstairs instead of rooms but you can over look that

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The staff were very friendly and helpful.

            The breakfast was not nice... Also, my room smelt cigarette when I asked for a non-smoking room but the staff was willing to change the room. Also, the description said 5mins walk from the convention centre but that's not true.

          • Couple
            2.8

            Nothing, its worst

            Bedsheets stink, whole hotel smells smoke even I have booked a non-smoking room it was worst. Its dirty every where and carpet stinks. They offer a complimentary breakfast which is very worst.

          • Couple
            4.2

            The staff was the only redemtive quality the hotel held for us.

            The bedding was stained, the rooms were small, the a/c filter needed changed, not enough parking, and just overall not kept up or clean.

          • Couple
            8.2

            I liked how cold the rooms were and how big the bed was. Not a lot of big families would go to this hotel since it is kind of small, which made it great for avoiding little kids! The location was also great since it was right off the highway, making it easier to leave and easier to find when coming back from the riverwalk

            The room was a little small, but perfect if you're planning on just sleeping. The hallways were way too hot since they felt like not air conditioning the whole building, which made all the food in the vending machines melted and hot also. I had also called for towels the next morning and no one had bothered sending them. I had to walk around the hot building looking for someone with towels so I could shower.

            Easy and friendly check in process

            The door to room 226 doesn't close.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            It was super close to where we needed to go that weekend who made it convenient.

            The smell of the room... It was humid and we had to keep the AC on all day to help some with the smell.

          • Family with children
            5.0

            the mirror and the lighting

            It needs much better breakfast, the carpet base boards were coming apart in room 109 not enough towels, no iron & ironing board needs better television

          • Couple
            3.2

            Cheap

            Disgusting! Cigarette burns in linens, spills on tables, hair left in shower, toilet continued to run all night, hallways smelt bad, etc.
