On two nights we heard bass from a club or speakers nearby at 3am, kept us up for an hour. Smashed Glass at front of hotel on road was left for over 24hrs without being cleaned, dangerous for car drop off. Rooms were ok, but dated hotel overall.

Very Clean and good size rooms. Parking was a bit of a hassle as they parked my car in another parking lot and I could not get anything out of it later. Great location.

Fantastic location as the shops and restaurants were a stone's throw away. For a quick overnight stay, it's good value for money. I would suggest though (with crowds building up) to have a buffet style breakfast instead. Wait was too long once everyone came in at 9am.
