Huge, clean room. Bathroom needs a bit of a refresh, with paint peeling near the tub and the shower surround tiling cracked and aging. That being said, it was very clean! Great Rocky Mountain Soap company toiletries (my favourite). Room was quite warm, had to open the patio door for some cooler air. There were frequent odd loud clunking noises all through the night, and unfortunately the exterior door / wall was quite thin so the 5:00 AM loud conversation between other guests right outside my door wasn’t great. Not the room you would expect in any other location for the rate, but was clean and met my needs for 1 night stay. Location is great, and rate was the best in the area at the time. Ok if you’re looking for a less expensive rate than other accommodations, in a great central location, but it’s definitely an old motel.
