Unfriendly (I would rather say rude) staff at check-in. Internet is slow, WHEN it works but even in rooms a few yards from the reception there is basically no wireless signal anymore. The "refurbished" rooms... well, I asked how the non-refurbished rooms look if the two we were in are "refurbished". Answer of the staff member at the reception: I...

We arrived on Thursday, 11/17 about 2:45pm and was told we had to wait until 3 for check-in...no problem. Upon entering the room, it was a shocker!! The carpet was soiled with big black spots throughout; the chair was also soiled and had what looked like cigarette burns. The curtains were old and appeared to be faded. The HVAC grill...

Staff was fine. Both nights there were people fighting and banging on the walls so I didn't get much sleep. Both nights there was no hot water so I had to resort to a cold shower the second night. Won't stay there again.

I was a bit worried about booking here as the room rate was only $100 Cdn. I just needed a room for somewhere to sleep and shower and this suited my needs. The room could have done with a better vacuuming the first day but found it was cleaner for the next 4 nights. Hotel is a quick walk to...

But this second time I woke in the middle of the first night with a severe head/beck migraine and burning chest pain.

We booked this Hotel for 1 night, mainly because of the location and the lack of resort fee. For a 2 x double bed room for a family of 4 for $200, we were very disappointed. We had been traveling around the surrounding areas for the last fortnight and this was by far the worst stay of our trip. Our...
