            • Group of friends
              4.2

              Somewhat dirty, flies everywhere, horrible smell, refused to partially refund me when I decided to leave early

            • Single
              3.8

              The location was good for me.

              The hotel is very old. And is very thirty outside and the bed is so bad I could not sleep.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              I liked the fact that rules laid down by the Hotel were not enforced e.g. No food to leave the breakfast area: guests were often seen taking food back to their rooms. The microwave/fridge were in good working order and the tea/coffee making facility generally worked although there was an electrical fault with it. Breakfast was reasonable; there was adequate choice to meet my needs.

              It was cold during my stay and the heater in the room I booked was not fit for purpose; on a good day it only managed a pitiful 'warm' temperature. The hotel also claims to be 'No smoking' although my husband & I could often smell illegal substances being smoked in a room not too far from ours. We had the misfortune to have a blocked toilet, when this was reported, the hotel staff deal with it in a very laidback style and to this day provided no mop/towels to clear up the water from the toilet floor.

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              convenience to destination.

              Accomodation for Seniors terrible. Too far from room and difficult to manage. Also no restaurant (as before) and no coffee shop. There were no T.V. listings, no telphone book, no details of times for breakfast or other suggestions.

            • Single
              5.0

              The interior needs updating and is going through renovations. The rooms need updating (sheets, blankets, towels, carpets, paint). The hotrl halls need cleaning and new wall paper.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              The Swimming Pool and the price

              Personell which did not inform us very much out of themselves and a very expensive internet use (0,5 dollar per minute internet)

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Value for money

              Add couple more things to breakfast

            • Single
              4.2

              The sheets seemed clean. There is free WiFi.

              The upper level was a student residence. There was a lot of coming and going of students and laundry hanging on the balcony's; the whole place is very 'tired' and worn. The hallways stank of asian food & curry. The door from the bedroom to the grounds area was so hard to open and close. The area that the room opened on to was a mess - looked like construction had been started and then abandoned. There was a nice grassy area on the right tho; the room had not been aired out at all for a long time - it was very stale smelling. I did not feel safe parking my car at the back of the building or leaving it there. When I arrived and finally found the room, I wanted to cancel the booking and leave but was so tired and did not know what else to do, I stayed there. The bedspread was smelly and had blood spots on it. The bed was not comfortable and the pillows were smelly too.

            • Couple
              7.8

              The employees at the front desk addressed me by my name after check-in, which was nice because I knew they took the time to actually remember it.

              There was a very noisy family beside our room.

            • Couple
              2.4

              Nothing. They screwed with my booking, instead of a king room they gave me a room with double bed. It was very dirty. Someone had a blunt session and left evidence behind. Shows that they don't clean thoroughly. The room keepers knock every morning asking if we are checking out, when they should know better and not to disturb us. We asked that they clean our room, but they only did it once while I was there supervising(jk I was eating) I had to wait till the keeper came around asking if we were checking out to ask to clean our room since front desk was no help at all. To add on the poor service, Our room cards did not work 2 nights in a row, for no apparent reason, and had to mission it to the ghetto front desk to ask them why, but had no explaination. My bf and I were unimpressed, we couldn't cancel it. You will get what you pay for. So from now on, I'm not settling for anything under $150. It's good if you don't care about the comments stated above, cuz it's dirt cheap. Don't let websites deceive you. Careful of miserable people at reception, and happy hunting.

              Nothing was great about this hotel. It looked like a scene out of a horror movie. Every night we would have to sleep with one eye open, since there was no security. Bad service, bad decor, bad everything, it'll have to be in the negatives in terms of scores. Tv was small, they shouldn't be called a hotel, more like a motel.

            • Single
              3.8

              Proximity to work location.

              The smoking room was too smelly and scummy to stay in. Changed to a non smoking room. Mattress was substandard and uncomfortable.

            • Family with children
              5.4

              The rooms were large, with good ac and were cleaned every day. Staff were very freindly

              The breakfasts were on paper plates and plastic cups with the same boring food served every single day. Carpets on stairs and corridord were worn and threadbare in places.

            • Single
              4.2

              it's location

              I was very disappointed, the place is the worst H J ihave ever stayed in, I picked it over the internet based on location and never checked the price. I was surprised when I went to check in how cheap it was. The place was in a bad state , no auto openning doors, rust stains in the bath tub and sink, the hallway smelled. I would never go back.

            • Family with children
              5.4

              Check in staff very friendly good price

              -Overall run-down, dilapidated condition of buildings and grounds, rooms also dipaidated but slightly better -provided breakfast was poor, few choices, no fruit except for juice -rooms were clean but stains on bedspread, scuffs on walls, gave impression of dirty

            • Single
              5.4

              The breakfast is very poor; there was no at least one type of cheese. When I told them, they did not care and answered it has been like this for many years. There were no big towels for bathrooms, all small towels.
