The hotel is being renovated right now and so it just looked like such a mess. The rooms aren’t anything extravagant and we saw little roaches in our room. Definitely wouldn’t stay here again or recommend to anyone.

Liked: Staff & service
Great location. Great staff. Unfortunately, this accommodation model does not work well with Covid-19. We were put in a room with a young man afflicted with serious coughing, moaning, wheezing, and nose blowing so severe that it continually woke him from his sleep. Because of the close proximity of the beds (3.5 feet & partially separated by curtains), we decided to stay elsewhere. The staff were very helpful in finding us alternative accommodations (at 1 am), but seemed unaware of the young man's condition until we informed them. We were released from the additional two nights we had planned to stay, but not the night that we left, so we were required to pay for two rooms in two different hotels. The management called us the following morning to apologize/ explain the current situation.
