"Not great value considering room size and lack of amenities."

"I understand that the hotel is undergoing renovations ... Rm # 127 was very small, bathroom the size of a closet with no ventilation.... no bedside lamps.... I thought that the rate was a bit much considering the size of the room and lack of amenities. I do however like the location!"

"Good accomodations for a great price !"

"Although the cleansiness of the hallways and strairs are mediocre giving a weary first impression, the rooms are clean and a good size for a family of four, the beds are comfortable and the staff members are very friendly. If reasonably quiet, the heated outdoor pool is available later than indicated which was appreciated due to the nice weather. The prices are great. Our family enjoyed our stay and will return !"

"The only thing wrong was there was a couple of rooms besides us and one below us that were extremly noisey and both myself and my daughter were kept awake till well after 3 am. This is the only thing that will stop me from staying here again."
