  • Single

    free Internet, shuttle service, restaurant in the very building

    no safe to store away precious things

  • Single

    The location is adequate. You will need a car. The hotel offers some type of local shuttle but I never saw the bus. Hotel could use some additional capital. It was a dark hotel. Old TV's. Expected flat screen TV's by now. Service was excellent. Looks like the landlord can improve upon the space.

  • Single

    balcony, nice towels, convenience

    no klenex no new shampoo on 2nd day very noisy floor

  • Family with children

    Absolutely no reason to stay here. Awful, scary guest experience.

    The dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. Floors in bathroom had bugs, dirt, had not been cleaned in long time. Carpet in room filthy, not been vacuumed. Room in complete disrepair, moldy, water stains. I was afraid all night.Also, did not receive the non-smoking room I requested. They said they were sold out of them so place in smoking room which was You should not allow them to use your website to sell rooms.

  • Single

    they had free internet, they had a computer downstairs with internet and a courtesy transportation

    When I arrived, the staff did not tell me about the courtesy transportation. I figure it out the next day.

  • Single

    ease of check-in and check-out. Friendly staff

    Rooms at the end of the hall are over the entrance to Panera and a major intersection so noise level is higher.

  • Family with children

    Proximity to University

    Exterior noise (traffic, siren)

  • Single

    When going to the third floor for ice, I was aware of a distinct foul odor in the hallway. I was so glad I wasn't staying on that floor.

  • Single

    Clean room for a good price, efficient and fast check-in/out.

  • Single

    Very nice hotel. Realtively cheap, close to forbes avenue.

  • Family with children

    The resturant right under my room had a food delivery at 6:00 am on sunday morning.Lots of noise. I complained an recieved a $10:00 credit. Also my discount of $20.00 was not done and I had to wait in line at checkout for 20min.

  • Group of friends

    Television was not working. Hotel Staff did not come up to the room and fix it. He forgot.

  • Couple

    location, balcony, microwave and fridge

    no parking during lunch time bc of busy panera downstairs, no pets allowed was annoying

  • Group of friends

    Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Maybe slightly older decor and tired looking but still perfectly comfortable

  • Couple

    Location was just outside city centre, staff were very helpful with our problem and deadly with this very satisfactorily. Would definitely stay again, but in a different room and floor.

    We were given a room on first floor, right next to the hotels air conditioning units which were drumming away all night which meant we couldn't sleep. When we complained there was unfortunately no other rooms available. The Duty Manager was more than helpful though and compensated us immediately.
