Thought it was great. Best Jacuzzi I've ever been in!! Not sure why, but the phone in our room rang twice with no one on the line. The second time was at 2am! We visited the Jacuzzi twice but the second time, there were no towels. We had to go back to the room dripping all over.

Great customer service! The room was huge and very clean. I loved how I could walk to the restaurants. The Houseman was very helpful and polite. Actually, I was really impressed. Great room and excellent price!

It is a perfectly fine, clean hotel. However, it does need to be refurbished and little repairs done. If you are at all picky about things being done right then this place will make you unhappy. Details were missed such as, vacuuming the stairwell and badly hung shower curtain. I showed up for late check-in and was informed that the...

Quite a large establishment with very large rooms. Clean bed and bathroom. Comfortable nights sleep. Free parking and wi-fi. 24 hour reception was handy as we were driving until late in the night. Priced reasonably.

We were a family of 2 adults and 3 older children.We had 1 overnight stay at the University Square hotel and had a OK experience. We always check for bedbugs and found nothing. The beds were very good to sleep. Rooms and bathroom were clean. They offered an American breakfast, which was OK.

Even on a day with full occupancy, front desk staff was nice to answer all my questions related to the gym, pool time, guest laundry. Check in was quick.This hotel is recently remodeled with new laminate flooring. Room nice and clean. Breakfast...

The rooms were nice but a bit worn. The beds were comfortable. The people were polite. The breakfast was better then others. Marie Callender's is right on the corner and gave us a 20% discount with room key card that was nice. Grounds could use some more care.

With this hotel you get exactly what you paid for. A typical 2.5 star accomodations. I stayed just for one night and skipped breakfast, so cant comment on that (but its a plus that free breakfast is included). The toom was ok, clean and spatious. Furniture was a bit old and worn. Overall - a good experience. In-room coffee was...

Literally, the worst hotel I have been to in my entire life. Not only the floors ( covered by a conveniently dark carpet) were stained and dirty, not even vacuumed prior to our arrival, but even when we stayed there, they remained covered with dirt from previous clients. Upon opening the bathroom door cockroaches ran around, except for one that...

We just stayed here for three nights. It was a really cheap last minute booking and we weren't disappointed due to the value for money. The hotel has a pool which is a nice facility, quite big but not completely clean. Breakfast wasn't brilliant and only lasted until 9am. Our bedroom had two enormous queen size beds with a big...
