"Below Average"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
the room did appear clean.. but needs to be updated and needs some work. example; peeling paint from the ceiling. I did not appreciate the $200 deposit required for broken or stolen items. this was not disclosed at time of booking.

"Wrong reservation, no WiFi."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
They got my reservation wrong. I booked one adult three kids in a room with two queen beds. The hotel had me as a single with one bed. I had to pay extra 20$ per night to get the room and beds I needed. The hotel's WiFi never worked. The room and bathroom need renovation. Paint peeling off the wall from condensation. Carpets are old and dusty. My kid lost a game case with over $600 worth of game cartridges and two controllers in the hotel. Overall it was a poor experience.

"Would not be my first choice."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The free breakfast was very, very limited. You either had to eat standing up or take your selection back to your room. The WiFi quality was very poor. My non smoking room smelled like cigarette. The carpet in the room had stains. The bathroom was missing tiles. The cleaning staff came so late that I told them not to bother. I wouldn't recommend it.

"Okay not the best."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The washroom was leaking. Had to change rooms for one night. Then they decided to keep us in the room we were moved too. The new room did not have a luggage stand. Some towels had stains on them. Our previous room was much nicer. I asked to speak with a manager. There was no manager on site or even an effort from the manager to come see and speak with me. There was no compensation as according to them I booked through a third party and not directly. So I was shit out of luck. Not worth the expense.

"Very Professional Desk Staff"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The hotel room was very clean and the bed was quite comfy. One more blanket would be great during cold weather and I was very happy that they were pet friendly.
