Not a good area to stay with the kids. XXX shop across the street and beer store behind the hotel.
The hotel is going through room updates. Bonus for us we got an updated room due to travelling with kids.
My 10year old daughter did not like this hotel. It really creeped/weirded her out. Wish I had taken pictures of the outside of hotel. Real shock when we pulled up, not what I'd expect from this chain hotel.

Thank you for your comment and we are glad to hear that our staff have given you a wonderful service by upgrading your room free of charge. Unfortunately, as of the moment we can only focus on the improvement of the hotel facilities. We understand that we have an issue with the area the hotel is on at. The good news is, the city government have started the rehabilitation of the area. We cannot wait until the development has been done. You are always welcome to come back and experience our wonderful service.
