Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The air and heating did not work properly, I turned on heat because room was so cold, heat came on and then started blowing cold air again. I turned unit off and it still blowed cold air. Room was beyound small, the toilet was at the head of the bed separated by a plastic partition that close leaving a 2 inch gap, that let all your business come out into the living room. They had no ice buckets, they gave you 2 plastic 8oz cups of ice. It was a horrible experience. I will continue to use Expedia but I will make sure the room has enclosed toilet.

Lovely staff at the check in desk and café. The room was basic but met all of my needs and budget. I loved the large shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles in the shower. Quality products and I didn’t have to throw away little bottles. Overall, this hotel is great for the cost.
