Looks nice externally but so tired and run down inside. Beds are terrible and should have been replaced years ago. Walls are paper thin, so much so you can hear people snoring in the room next to you! Bathroom are functional but thats all. Worse hotel I've stayed at

Rooms very dated. That’s okay if you get what you pay for but felt was overpriced for the 70’s decor and facilities.
