    Ehhh... not good

    It wasn't that clean, but I didnt see any bugs so that was good at least. Room smelled musty. When we arrived the room thermostat was set to 68... clearly for a reason because the warmer it was in the room, the more you could smell it. So take your pick between smelling more musty or being freezing, lol! It definitely is more dated & run down than it appears in the photos. Beds were creaky, but bearable. Sofa bed was really awful! I felt really bad for my son who had to sleep there. After the first night, he slept on it like a couch without pulling out the bed. Kitchen was relatively well stocked, but there was a broken glass in dishwasher. Ice maker in freezer did not work & we had to buy a bag of ice from a convenience store.Toiletries dispensers in bathroom were empty. Breakfast was very lame... same thing everyday (muffin, coffee, gross orange juice.) I realize breakfast situation is limited due to covid, but there could have been other options without jeopardizing sanitation, like yogurts or bananas, etc.) Family of 5, stayed 3 days. The one amazingly positive thing was a space & size of the room! It was big. Really big. I wanted to love it because of all the space! However due to all the other conditions, I really feel like I overpaid for the room & would likely not stay again.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Great stay

    Really enjoyed my stay. The people working there are exceptionally helpful and friendly. My criticism was the breakfast and store area. It’s not vegan friendly at all… As we (society) is moving in a more dairy free and plant based direction, it would be nice to have some type of offering. BUT the room was great and it’s close to a lot of amenities. I’d stay there again for sure. The staff deserves an A+++

  • 6.0.Good

    It’s a great location, everything is close - the parks, the icon. The rooms have enough space and nice views. I didn’t like several things about the hotel - it’s very noisy from the outside, day and night. Some things in our room were broken - the toilet handle, the outdated sofa (we didn’t have extra bedding for it too, had to ask), the shower gel dispenser. But my main concern was that the front door opened very hard, my husband and I had to apply a lot of pressure or pulling to get inside or outside the room. The door just got stuck every time. I asked for another room but the stuff refused to change my room although I stayed with 4 kids.
