Every time I visit my family I stay at this hotel even though there are closer places near my family home in the Capital area. I enjoy the free breakfast and the facilities. This trip in particular, we weren’t very happy with the breakfast. There was very little to eat and whatever was there was not replenished. The drink machine had a sign that it was not working so limited to coffee and there was only a small tray of eggs. Even after a few people asked for them to put out more things the worker just disappeared a few times. The other BIG disappointment of our weekend visit was the very strong constant smell of marajuana in the halls! This was in early am morning 8am and at night too around 9/10. So much so we had to put a towel at foot of room door which is a hazard in case of fire. I couldn’t stand it and I also have a 1yr old. Irony is there are signs everywhere for no smoking no vaping and specifically no marijuana. Very disappointment this was not enforced especially when the maids were walking halls and smelled it too. As much as I do love this hotel I’d have to rethink staying here if they can get the smoking thing sorted out. Do what you want in the privacy of your own home but when paying so much to stay in a hotel I do not want to have marajuana or cigarette strongly smelt everywhere. Unreal how hotel let it go on and this isn’t first time but the worst time so far.

Good room for the area!
