The Good
Guests who reviewed this hotel typically enjoyed their stays. The hotel offered consistently clean rooms with updated and very comfortable beds.

Another highlight of this hotel was the location, in a picturesque setting by the river and offering pretty views from the rooms. Some were pleased to find a quiet room with walking trails nearby and some were pleased to be able to walk to the downtown core in 5 minutes, just over the bridge.

Many commented on the staff and said they were very kind and helpful. 

Guests frequented East Side Marios and some enjoyed the terrace and reasonably-priced dinners.
The Bad
The main negative point for this hotel was that it was dated. Guests pointed to small and older bathrooms that needed to be renovated, but some did mention that they found newer beds, new carpet, new style door locks and flat screen TVs.

A couple of guests complained of musty smells in the room, but one admitted that it disappeared once the AC, which worked fine, was put on.

A few guests felt the hotel was priced a little high.
