Guest reviews

  • Couple

    Very nice hotel, clean, friendly, helpful staff and discreet. Great location well served by public transport

  • Single

    Good location and value for the money. Decent breakfast. Comfortable, clean and relatively quiet. Helpful daytime front desk staff.

    Cleaning staff very inconsistent. Night desk clerk was not without his charm!

  • Single

    Nice staff, nice place, nice rooms, nice pool. Very good!

    The Fitness Room is not a real one, is just a hole. By the way is difficult

  • Family with children

    Staff did their best at this budget hotel.

    This is an old style motel in a seedy location that has attempted to modernize. It certainly does not meet expectation for a convention centre hotel that suggests a modern hotel attached to a convention centre.

  • Single

    It was only a couple of blocks from my daughters college Orientation

    Small detail Would have been nice to be notified before I checked out that you tack on ten dollars for incidentals, that will come Off my account late rd . Would dance me a phone call.

  • Single

    Very complete with the pool, gym, steam room, and snacks located in lobby. I was impressed with the facilities amenities as compared to the larger hotels.

  • Older travelers

    The free breakfast and internet access. Security. Free internet wireless access.

    My room card was not able to open the gate on S. First Street when it is closed.

  • Single

    I arrived at 11:45 AM and asked if it would be possible to check in due to having a cold and wanting to have lunch and rest. The desk clerk was very nice and helpful and she was able to get me a room at that hour. She also gave me some suggestions for lunch in the area. I was able to have lunch and get the rest I wanted.

    I was on the first floor so there was a lot of talking outside my room as people gathered near their cars. It didn't continue late into the evening so it was not a problem for sleeping.

  • Single

    The room was very clean and comfortable (the bed was really good). At this price you are right next to the conference center. My only concern might be the wall which are pretty thin, but it was perfectly ok my neighbors were quiet and so is the neighborhood. I recommend it!

  • Single

    Friendly staff, good location (close to convention center), clean and spacious room. They repaired a broken handle even if I didn't complain.

    Rooms are a bit noisy (you could hear footsteps and voices from the other rooms). The breakfast room is ridicously small and the quality of food was poor.

  • Single

    Absolute value for money, handy for my needs, generous breakfast suppllies, all one could need in room/bathroom supplies,

    A bit noisy at times,

  • Single

    Best thing is location, literally 5 min walk from the convention center. Room was also clean, breakfast nothing spectacular but not poor either, fresh fruit, cereal and yoghurt, all great with me.

    #1 it's more like a motel than a hotel. this means it's great for a single business traveller. Not so much for families or romantic couples. #2 I never knew just how poorly sound-proof a hotel could be until I stayed here (and I've stayed in a decent few) -- you could literally hear everything around you in other rooms. Didnt bug me so much but if you need superquiet when you sleep, you should keep this in mind.

  • Family with children

    Loud guests fighting in the parking lot, not so great of an area, very tight space in a room with two double beds, the door had a big crack in the bottom and it was cold all night long.

  • Family with children

    It was a bad experience. Really poor costumer service,extremely noise from 3 to 6 am. We could not sleep, I had to send my kids back home.

    costumer service,room size,dirty pool.

  • Single

    Convenient location to the city center.

    Lots of noise from the next and upper rooms.
