    The bed was the best! Very comfortable.

    The girl working behind the check out desk was a little "clueless". Did not realize our reservation was for 3 nights and only charged us for 1. The all you can eat breakfast buffet was not there, we had to order it and wait, food selection was poor. The stairway from the parking lot was dirty. The back parking lot did not have any lighting at night.

    Well we enjoyed the Pool , Whirlpool and Sauna Also the restaurant and the gambling machines . Not to far from downtown if you need to take a taxi .

    You should have your front desk staff to have more knowlege on information about the City ect.............and the room should have a little side table in the bathroom

    Location

    Put me on the second floor when the motel was obviously not full. The requirement of a contingency deposit was unnecessary. The restaurant was advertised to open at 6 am, I left at 6:30 and it was not open. No coffee in the room

    The new operator has been there about 2 years. He is changing the bathrooms and giving the outside a face lift. It is close to Harbour station you could walk The price was good as we were only looking for a clean bed and bathroom. I think in a few years if progress continues it will be a nice motel again.We were on the inner court which would be nice in the evening

    I found there was little soundproofing from hall to rooms.

    I liked that it is close to the highway and easy to find and I found the girl at the desk very nice and helpful.

    I did not like that the room was very cold.

    I had the worst hotel and client service experince in 15 years of travelling. Nothing was right at the hotel. Its my first time as a client that I am treated as a garbage can like that. I am asking for a credit or a partial or full refund, the owner Bill wont return my call. I ask twice to be called back, no news. I was instead told to right him and email with all my concerns, wich he already denied and refuse to apologize or give a credit for that crappy experience. As a professionnal, a company owner, a traveler, Im shocked by the unprofessionnal attitude of this hotel. I DO NOT recommand it to anyone. 79$ plus tax a night, I was expedcting at least a decent stay, nothing fancy. A dormor would give me more comfort and respect for a third of the price. As you can see, Im still furois by the way I was treated by the staff, even though I was very polite ans miling to each of them: Chris (the one lying, see below), Dave (early morning staff) and Ginny on the phone. The owner, Bill Mostofa, wont return my call.

    In 15 years travelling, it was my most awful experience. On a first level, the room was falling a part like the rest of the hotel I saw. The bedspread was smelling body odour, the shower fixture was falling apart, I could here the guy next door talking, coughing, farting, I could here every other rooms tv show, I couldnt get the heater working, I froze all night. It smeeled smoke on the 1st and 2nd level of the hotel. The alarm clock wasnt working. After trying to move room, I have been told that the hotel was full, I aksed for a fan so I can bary the sound, wich they brought me. Next day, after talking to Ginny, very nice lady, the night clerk told her he offered me twice to change me room: FALSE. I couldnt get a credit for my crappy experience and Im told that they dont believe my side of the story. Im trying to talk with the owner, he is never available to talk to me. Im bringing this story to another level, its unexceptable to treat a client this way. As a company owner, Im shocked to see that some onwers would behave this way. Unprofessionnal all the way, beside for Ginny, always very nice a polite. They charged my Visa even before I left the hotel!!!!

    Place was dirty. Right from when I got there walking through the halls to the room. Take your own sleeping bag.

    Staff were very responsive did everything they could to assist me.

    Internet service was out when I needed it most to prepare a report and presentation for a business meeting.

    The beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable. Room was clean but bathroom was very small. We stayed there because it had a pool for our daughter, but the pool was not very clean nor was the hot tub. The sauna was not working at all while we were there.

    The bed was comfortable

    I thought I was getting a good price for a hotel with all it offered. I now believe that I payed too much. The place is in dire need of renovation throughout.
