The room was ok, amenities ok, location appears to be in walking distance from the city center, that is true, but part of this walk is along a busy and very noisy road.
My biggest disappointment was the mail confirmation that I received immediately after making my reservation: "Although we do offer kitchen facilities in all our suites, we ask that you do not cook foods that have a strong lingering odour (such as fish, seafood, bacon and other strong smelling food items) in your suite. We do have an outside barbeque available for your use throughout the year and there are several restaurants in our neighbourhood that feature fish and seafood items. " What is the use of an equipped kitchen if I cannot even cook eggs & bacon?
I find the motel too expensive for what it is and offers.
