We didn't have a problem with the room, but the lobby, bar, and restaurants are starting to look shabby and old. This hotel is in desperate need of a face lift. The room however was fine, the bed was comfortable, and it was nice and...More

This hotel is very dated and badly needs an upgrade. The worst thing though was the odour. It hits you as soon as you enter the reception, gets worse in the hallways but thankfully isn't as bad in the rooms. It is a horrible musty...More

Sorry, I am just seeing this question. If I remember correctly our rate was $175.00 for one night which included fees and taxes. We were there in October 2016.
