Surely not the best hotel in town, surely not in the best location, surely not to spoil someone BUT it's a cheap and ok hotel for one/two nights stay if you are not scared of being in front of a cemetery (added value the neighbors are quite). Having said so, lobby staff have been very kind and will to help,...

Some of the reviews made me very concerned when I reserved a room through Hotwire. But my experiences were very positive. It is an inexpensive hotel, but the breakfast was good, the computer center had a printer, the room was clean and the walk to the subway seemed safe. It was less than a mile and a shuttle ran during...

First impression - (negative). We had arrived after a long overnight flight and were on foot with 5 bags, trying to find the hotel in the middle of a news making thunder & lightening storm. We knew BWCVI offer a pick up service from the closest station, but she said it was not available anymore. We arrived after a while...

After calling and speaking to the front desk receptionist, I didn't even want to stay here. She was so rude to me on the phone, I couldn't even imagine what kind of service they have once you get there.

Ok for the actual price. Pretty Old but some rooms are slightly renovated. The short walk to the next subway Station is a Good Thing. When you stay in this Hotel you should also have a look in the Irish Pub right beside this hotel.

I usually like Best Western but this place was bad smelly and the breakfast was cold and served like it was for dogs. The smell of weed was always there when you entered the main lobby. I could write more but it would take to long
