One night in Franz Josef
It was just a one night stop. The Montrose was ok really, it was far from new and without any bells and whistles but it seemed pretty clean and the staff seemed to care about the place.

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The room was clean and comfortable- the tv was a nice addition to the room. Kitchen was well kept and the size seemed reasonable for the number of folks staying. Biggest drawback that essentially ruined our stay was that the floors and walls are so thin, we were kept up most of the night by late arrivals (10pm and midnight) then again by people getting up early (5am).
