Received a "non-smoking" room and had to sign a non-smoking pledge which would charge me $$$ if there were signs of smoking. But the hotel used to have smoking rooms, one of which I got. It *reeked* of smoke, and there as an ashtray on the nightstand (?). I don't smoke, so these un-renovated non-smoking rooms are pretty gross. There were burn holes in the bedspread and burn marks on the formica bathroom counter.
I needed to leave very early for the airport and checked the night before that I could get my paid receipt for expense purposes @ 4am. Was assured I could. The guy at the desk the next morning couldn't figure it out and took over 20 minutes to get me a receipt. I almost missed a flight because of this.
Overall, it's a cheap old hotel that needs renovations badly, smells of smoke in their nonsmoking rooms, and has untrained staff who may foul up your travel plans if you don't plan for their slowness.
It is cheap, though. And clean and functional in a "basic hotel" sense. Also it's off the main roads, and near to shopping. Just know what you're getting.
