The Good
Guests generally felt that this hotel was a decent place to sleep, with everything offered as distinctly average. 

The location was likely the best feature, right on the highway and easy to find. It was a short drive, or easy walk, to the mall for groceries, ice cream, dining and shopping. One guest liked that there was a Boston Pizza a block away and another said he enjoyed the new microbrewery next door.

Denny's was on hand and guests typically appreciated getting breakfast there. They found it convenient and affordable.

Rooms were described as clean and quiet, with comfortable beds and really nice complimentary soap and toiletries. Some found updated rooms with modern duvet bedding, but this was not in all the rooms it seems. Those who had mini-fridges and microwaves appreciated them.

Guests who commented on the pool usually liked this facility and thought it was well maintained and clean.

Guests also liked: lots of electrical outlets for charging electronics, free coffee, and reasonable room rates.

The Bad
Some guests were not fully comfortable and found the hotel a little tired.

Recent room complaints: bed too hard, small rooms with beat up furniture, tired and outdated, small bathroom, noisy AC, musty odour, fuzzy TV and poor housekeeping.

Hotel related complaints were: fitness room was too hot, pool water very cold, no elevator to second floor, dated hallway and narrow driveway entrance.

One recent guest said the only negative is having to cross a double yellow line on the highway when exiting the property back into Terrace. His advice was, "Turning left on to the highway is a problem, and better dealt with by turning right and doing a 180 at the next corner."
