Edmir, us1 night trip
Poor 2.0
Dirty and worn down. Bug guts smeared on the walls, drywall was rotting, a/c sucked. It was over 80 degrees in the room when we got there. Staff was clueless about what was happening in city (big festival made rooms hard to come by) I could go on and on... bottom line is I wish we could have gone elsewhere. It was gross and we will never stay here again.

Ok for the price
The room was clean and comfortable but had a slight smell of stale smoke despite being a non-smoking room. There is a convenience store and a Tim Horton's near by and the walk downtown is about a mile. The area itself is not that nice with a pawn shop etc.
Karen, us1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Carpet and washrooms and even covers are really old and in bad condition. AC is very loud.

Good 6.0
Centrally located is about all we can say nice. Needs a little refreshing is all. For one night it works. For $20 or so more go down the strip to Best Western
Ana, us1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
It was adequate for a night of sleep and clean. The pool area was locked so we couldn’t use it.
Holly, us1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
The property is dated and would require an extensive refurbishment. The cleanliness was acceptable. We found some hair on the bathroom floor and a stain on the bed sheet. When brought to the staff's attention, these deficiencies were promptly fixed. The place was fairly quiet and we had a good night sleep. The price was adequate.

I would like the coffee to be available before 6:30 AM. The staff is quite friendly.
