I stayed here Sat night for one night. Industrial location so not very scenic but was exactly what I needed for the night. Room was clean and a typical setup for a hotel. Shower was fine, albeit a little small. Front-office staff was helpful and friendly. My only knock is the soda machine being out of order (but then again...

Dear Tchoiniere, Thank you! We have called the soda company and the machine has been fixed, come back!! As I always say, we are close to everything yet far enough to appreciate the silence. Our room standards are high and cleanliness is our top priority! See you soon! Chiara

What I needed for a one night stay. I would have liked while booking online that it would tell you it wasn't officially paid for. Thought I was all set until I checked in.

Dear Khelak, Thank you for taking the time to review us! I am sorry for the inconvenience encountered upon check-in. Many times, when booking through 3rd party sites, payment is not needed until one arrives at the hotel. I do hope you will give us a second chance! Chiara

The sleeping accommodations were fine, and our 8-year-old granddaughter loved the heated swimming pool! But my wife and I were appalled at the incessant display of Fox News streaming off the television sets from all directions in the breakfast room. There was no escaping the constant barrage of shootings, bombings, and other acts of violence! It's bad enough for adults...

Dear nyacko, The channel might have been requested by a guest and we certainly try to accommodate everyone. Unfortunately, had it been any other news channel, it would have shown the same images as these matters are real and relevant. If there is anything that seems inappropriate, we encourage you to speak up or request a channel change. The Howard...

Stayed at this hotel October 2016 . Checking in at reception was quick and easy! The rooms are of a good size spotlessly clean and comfortable. Have a really nice swimming pool where you can swim or just sit and chill . The buffet breakfast is very good. All in all I would have no problem using this hotel again...
