Clean and spacious rooms
While you shouldn’t expect any luxuries here, guests do tend to describe the rooms as clean and spacious if a little dated. Included amenities provide most of the essentials including a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. Guest also report that the bathrooms are clean.
For many previous guests, the staff has been one of the highlights of their stay. This is no five-star property but the staff takes pride in keeping the hotel running smoothly and as well maintained as possible. Guests have found the staff friendly and happy to help.
Some noise concerns
Guests have been able to hear traffic, as well as people in rooms adjacent to and above their own. The pool doesn’t seem to close, so people using the facility late at night can also disturb guests. All this suggests that soundproofing could be much improved.
Breakfast often disappoints
Although budget-conscious guests have liked the fact that breakfast is free, many people have been disappointed by what’s on offer, describing the selection of food as limited. It seems that fresh fruit is off the menu, as are many other things you might reasonably expect to be included in a continental breakfast.
Wi-Fi is slow
Previous guests have found the Wi-Fi at this hotel was very slow and also prone to disconnecting every 30 minutes of so. There’s no premium upgrade available, so you may need to use the data on your cell phone if you need to get online.
