    Never go back

    Cops were called. Zero management. Rude aggressive people of location for management discussion.

  • 6.0.Good

    Positive points: - The room is clean. Bedside lamps have usb charging ports. - Easy parking. Negative points: - The room is a bit small. - The bathroom doesn't separate wet and dry areas well. - Too NOISY. Sound-proof is very bad. You can hear the sound from neighbor or top-floor rooms all the night. - The hairdryer is broken.

    Check in was at another hotel which was extremely difficult to go when it snowed. I had back pain for a week after sleeping on their bed. Very uncomfortable and cheap bed.

    The receptionist was very friendly. The room was clean, comfort and has most of the basic supplies I needed except for the coffee maker. It was hard to get the facial tissues from the meatal container which was not secured on the wall.
