This hotel is barely average. The staff is friendly and personable, the beds were comfortable and the showers were hot, but otherwise, it was just OK. The place felt like it used to be a nice hotel maybe 50 years ago, but obvious renovations haven't given it any charm or improved the hotel experience. There are dangerous changes in floor level as you walk down corridors, and risk falling or tripping. No hairdryer unless you requested one and signed away your first born. There is a safe for valuables, but the doors don't self close. After our laundry was returned to us, someone stole clean clothing out of our room - Who has to lock up travel clothing in one's room???? I would resist staying here again and opt for something closer to town and a little less tired looking and feeling.
