              • Older travelers

                Rooms were dated and although the bedding was clean and the bed comfortable the whole facility needs a generous cleaning and update.

                It was outdated and the breakfast was very poor not well supplied (we had to ask for plates and napkins) milk was gone.

              • Older travelers

                Fair value for a one-night stopover.

                Somewhat noisy -- no sound insulation between rooms?

                This hotel has definitely seen better days it is rather run down and seedy

              • Older travelers

                It was poorly maintained, not enough staff, whole atmostphere was one of neglect from the entrance hall through to the dining facilities. Of the 19 places we stayed during our holiday, this was the worst.

              • Family with children

                The tv was not flat screen, the carpet needs replaced or professionally cleaned, there were no towels in the room, but whatever, I'm not pickey

              • Older travelers

                When I arrived, at 11 pm, there was a person screaming and cursing in the parking lot. A man came in as I was registering using very foul language, the hotel employee appeared to accept this vial language and cursed as well. The room was not clean, there was a dirty glass mark on the table,it smelled and the whole place needed a vacuum. I will never stay there again and would not recommend this hotel
