Didn't care for it to be honest
I initially made a mistake while booking rooms, thinking I was booking 2 queen beds / room not 1 so not enough room for everyone, but while we stayed we didn't like the fact that the hotel lobby and breakfast room smelt like a combination of a mens hockey changeroom / urine and that there were lots of fruit flies around the food...it was quite a turn off !!! Reception offered us 2 double beds at $119 a night but we felt we could get a better quality hotel for that or less so we didnt stay the 2nd night
The bed was very comfortable and location was perfect.
A/C did not work well, clock did not work, no bath, requests were ignored, wake up call, towels and face cloths.
I will not be staying again.
To much to mentioned
Housekeeping Balcony TV size Night staff Mini fridge Size of the room Like that the shower wasn't in the bathroom ..separate room within the room 24hour front desk service
To close to downtown To much late night action Morning staff were ignorant short rude and has no customerservice skills Tub size Bed to hard Price of the room Floor is extremely unlevel Not enough pillows
TV didn't work and they didnt try and fix it
The fact that it was minus 20 and there was a gaping hole at the bottom of the door, which made the room very cold. We were then switched to another room, which was nice of them to do, but it was still terrible. Very out dated, temperature was still cold, door did not lock properly, looked like someone tried to break the door in....bed was way small, we booked a queen, there's no way we were given a queen, and the TV didn't work! Overall it was terrible, we didn't even stay the night, and no refund was given. My advice, it may be a cheap hotel, but not worth it!
We only staying in the honey moon suite because it is the only room with a king size bed and bath. We did not have enough hot water to even fill the bath passed the jets. We also had to clean out the bath before we used it because it was filthy and had bugs in it. We rinsed it 3 times (with cold water). When I called to complain in the night, the overnight staff who answered said to tell them about it in the morning, and hung up on me. The room was overall gross, and absolutely freezing. We had no heat, and the door didn't close properly. It was -30 outside. Overall not impressed at all.
Location and cost
A bit noisy at 4:00 am
Very nice & clean
I don't like cooled
Asked for a no smoking room, our room reeked of cigarette smoke. The staff working front desk was very rude and not helpful at all.
Staff was very rude , didn't make our stay pleasant at all
breakfast was better than expected
floor above squeeked when they walked until we figured it out - a bit annoying
an attempt to remodel an aging, (smoking) facility into an acceptable motel. Friendly, helpful female staff.
Musty smell, old walls, old hallway carpet, no sound protection from the room above. Minimal breakfast (no orange juice or hot food) with the exception of a griddle. Lack of fresh fruit/
Stuff is pleasent. You have all necessary devices and tools. Not far from downtown.
Old rooms and furniture. Dirty torn curtain, dirty AC. Towels smells not fresh. Bad sound insulation.
l booked well in advance and asked for a lower floor due to hip problems, but had to argue with staff to get them to give up a lower floor room, phone was broken, no hot water for shower, and railing to lthe office was so filthy my hand was covered in dirt,.
