2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Hotel is dishonest as they advertise that they have charging stations for electric cars. They do not. What they provide is a wall socket to plug you car in, which is sub-standard at best. Hard to chase after charging for my car off site and was a problem. The rooms are old and do not have plus available for digital devices. The staff were very friendly by the hotel was a disappointment. Caveot emptor!

excellent service and location
Excellent service, really comfortable bed and great location, but the hotel is in need for renovations. Our room door showed so many signs of forced break ins, we were a little worried about security.
