    Worst Ever Hotel!
    So sorry to say that this Hotel is the worst ever hotel which I have been! The washroom is so dirty with yellow muddy on the bathtub. The wall is lack of maintainenance. The room is uncomfortable for you to stay even more than a minute. I finally escaped the Hotel and found another one in Gurney!
