This property was under a remodel. All the furniture was thrown out in the halls in front of the guest rooms. The mattresses from the remodeled rooms were piled in laundry room on floor. The existing room was stinky and the safe in the room was locked, so we were unable to use it for our valuables. The hotel offers...

I booked this room at last minute. The rooms are being Renovated. I got a updated room it was large and had a huge jacuzzi. The room was pretty clean and a solid rating of 3. Price was good for this size of a room. Pool looked like it needed cleaning.

We needed a place for one night before our return flight home so we chose this based on pics (showed the water side view and the pool). Check in was easy and the front desk (Gary) was extremely polite. We were put on the back side which faces the water. Oh yeah....it's also got a set of railroad tracks right...

All four desk staff we dealt with went out of their way to provide personal service. When there was a problem with taxi transportation they stepped up and solved the problem. They even picked up dirty plates from the breakfast table while we were eating. Incidentally the breakfast was above average with waffles, eggs (two kinds), toasted bagels, fresh fruit...

Staff went out of their way to be helpful! Very friendly. Great value for a decent room and breakfast. There is some construction noise during the day, but we went out to enjoy the town and it wasn't a problem. It is close enough to walk to the old city or the Red Train staff will come pick you up...

Price was right, but there was a reason. The hotel is under construction, and they put us right on top of it. Also, there is a freight train that passes immediately behind the hotel nightly. The front side is fine, near the pool where there is no construction or train. DO NOT EAT THE BREAKFAST SAUSAGE! I had the most...

This is one of the rooms that have been redone. The bathroom is absolutely beautiful. Very roomy, and I love the option of two different shower heads. Extremely clean, and very convenient with the small fridge and microwave. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi connection was wonderful. I mention this because sometimes the connection is so bad...

The hotel is not what I expected. The pictures did not match the reality. They are remodeling the hotel and t was too noisy. The contraction people could be seen outside their rooms in underwear. The first room that they gave me has carpet and it was stained. I did not feel safe leaving my belongings in the hotel and...

We checked out after 1 night. My boyfriend & I arrived in the evening. As soon as we walked into the room a musty, dirty smell hit us. My boyfriend turned on the AC hopeing to get some air circulating. We dropped our bags & went to eat. We returned several hours later. The room still smelled awful. I went...
