The room was fine. Quiet and comfortable. Location was great. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The woman working the counter when we checked in was very rude. Could not understand what she was saying and literally threw the room key and credit card at us. The continental breakfast must have been the dry cereal and coffee in the office when I dropped the key off. Only 1 coffee in the room, there were two of us so we skipped the coffee.

Should have strongly considered previous reviews about this place. It is not clean. The shower had hair on the drain from a previous guest. The shower had discoloration from who knows what and places where mold was growing. The bathroom exhaust fan was clogged with dust. The beds were horribly uncomfortable. The place is located right next to the Alpine restaurant, which may or may not be a bonus for someone. The place is supposed to have a continental breakfast but when and what was never mentioned at check-in. The sign for the place says "squeaky clean." It is not that.

The staff had a heavy accent and was not understandable nor pleasant. The marquee advertised a breakfast but after I paid I was told "Sorry. No breakfast." And I got the impression there hadn't been for sometime. I paid way too much. I saw the price for the next day was half what I paid. The hallway floor was very slanted. The room was very clean but with dark dreary colours . Overgrown outside. Don't stay here. Maybe for $60 if you're on a budget......definitely not for double the price.

Excellent, convenient location. Friendly staff. Comfy bed. Good price. Had a good night's rest. However, the advertised free breakfast did not exist, wi-fi also seemed missing, and there was soap scum in the bottom of the tub.

The previous reviews are pretty accurate. The room is clean, spacious and good enough for a 1 or 2 star motel. But as others have said, the staff is extremely rude. It’s like they purposely go out of their way to be rude. It seems like they strongly dislike their business. You have to see it to believe it. In 2022 when it is all about customer service, I don’t know how they get away with it. And as others have said, there is no continental breakfast though their sign indicates so.
