    I found the facility to be well managed and the staff to be very accommodating. The physical plant was in excellent condition. I especially appreciated the food options that were available for sale after the late night event.

    Cobwebs in room corners and filth on the bathroom floor were major turn offs. This property also allows pets, including cats, without mentioning that fact on its website or literature. That is a breach of trust for anyone severely allergic to critter dander.

    Rooms were cleaner than any hotel I've stayed at in the United States. Plus, they had cookies, beer, and pizza available to 2am (actually, the food was available all night) -- this place knows how to do it right! Plus the rates were entirely reasonable.
