Cons: Broken appliances, cramped bed, bad layout, archaic TVs, unhelpful staff, Weird smell,
Apparently, this hotel was completely renovated in 2000; however, it seems as if the hotel has been stuck in the 1970s. Everything from the broken mini-fridge with fake wood paneling to the crappy little TVs with ten channels, two of which were softcore porn, really added to a pleasurable hotel experience. The room design was ill-conceived at best. The beds barely fit two people. The hallways also exuded a strange odor usually associated with tenements from the 70s. The staff didn't know where Fredrikstad was. I would expect all of the aforementioned flaws from a New Jersey motel; however, we paid four star hotel prices for this glorified dump. I suppose if your idea of a pleasurable stay in a hotel is watching porn in a cramped bed and drinking warm beer from the broken mini-fridge, then the Rica Saga Hotel is for you. For virtually everyone else, this hotel ought to be avoided.

DisappointingPosted Jul 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
The whole hotel is in desparate need of a facelift. The elevator sounded like the Millenium Falcon failing to make the jump to hyperspace, and it resonated through the walls. There were a total of 5 parking spaces in front of the hotel, which were full; so we were directed to park in the enclosed basement - with the dumpsters and junk from the other business attached to the hotel. It was pretty disgusting to navigate past the dumpsters to enter the hotel from the unsecured basement doors... Very disappointing...
