Positive Reviews

Renovated Rooms Delight Guests

This hotel has recently renovated their rooms and guests are pleasantly surprised by the laminate wood floors that replaced the carpet. Guests also appreciate the additional outlets, the comfortable bed, and the ability to pull-up your car directly to the door of your room.

Convenient Location near Restaurants

This hotel is in a great location for easy access to restaurants. There is an Applebee's that shares the same property as the hotel, and you're also within walking distance to other restaurants such as Starbucks, O'Charleys, and a BBQ place. Guests love the convenience of finding a nearby bite to eat.

Guests Appreciate the Value

Guests feel that for a budget-friendly hotel like this, you certainly get a great value for what you receive, and you won't leave disappointed.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms Need Updating

While the bedrooms have been updated, the bathrooms are in desperate need of renovations as well. With issues like missing fixtures, broken toilet seats, and a noisy fan, these bathrooms are ready for a facelift. The mould and stains in the tub leave a lot to be desired.

Uninspired Breakfast Service

While breakfast is provided free of charge, the choices are quite limited and the quality of the food and beverages are average at best. You may want to explore nearby options if breakfast is important to you.

Frustrating Noise Problems

This location can be quite noisy, as you can hear other guests at all hours of the night when they are on their balconies. Guests say a group as small as two can sound like a raging party. There is also a lot of traffic noise and the walls are very thin, so you can hear what's going on in your neighbours' rooms.
