5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The room was lovely and I was given a full complimentary breakfast when I told them I was visiting a family member at the hospital.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

People were all really great but rooms are very shabby. Frayed carpet, spots on walls and ceilings, bent lampshades, holes in towels. There was actually a stick up on the wall above the desk. Our friend's room lock was messed up. Had difficulty with deadlock and gouged door so must have happened in the past. The bedding is so crispy it actually made noise to move around. Also, you could either be cold or hot with only sheet or heavy duvet. No in-between blanket was on bed or in closet.
