“great affordable,clean place to stay.”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

Ive rented a room in this hotel for a couple days. The staff is super friendly. The rooms are really affordable. They've recently renovated/updated the 2nd floor bathrooms with full shower's, toilets, and sinks and are in immaculate shape.The hotel definately met the expections. The hotel is in a prime location close to the shopping mall, and restaurants. I'll definately will be staying at this hotel when im travelling through the area.

This hotel met expectations, but did not exceed them. There wasn't, for example, soap in the bathroom. However, the friendly staff made up for it. The furniture is old, but cute. No bugs. A good place to rest your head. Beware, though. Apparently, there is live music under the hotel a few nights a week, and it is a little bit noisy.
For the price, we didn't complain.
However, if you are worried that loud music all night might upset you, call ahead, and make sure that you are coming on a non-musical night.
The staff was friendly. They told me that they occasionally take in homeless people for free in the winter. I think that's great, and amazing, but if that is the type of thing that sketches you out, pay a little bit more, and stay somewhere else.

All in all, it was great for the value, but don't expect a 4-star hotel. If you expect a 4-star hotel, stay at one. For the price, it was exactly what I expected. I would return.

Recently stayed here enroute to vancouver. Rates were great. Staff was helpful and the live music venue downstairs was a great place to enjoy some local talent while having a nightcap. Thanks for a great start to our travel westward

we were there for a two night stay for the algoma train trip to the agawa canyon. october 7-8. this was booked through booking.com. it was very difficult to find due construction.(not their fault) once there we paid in advance for the two nights (138 $ CN + 5 $ key deposit) the building was, according to the desk guy, built in 1833. believe it! it was more like a dorm. we had to walk up ricerty stairs to the room. no phone, no thermostat, one quilt/blanket, old tv,.i asked for coffee and he charged me
1 $ for 2 tiny styroform cups. slept ok. left at 630 am got back at 600 pm. at 800 pm the proverbial crap hit the fan. the most god-awful noise from an electric guitar and assorted other string instruments assailed us from all sides. wife went to check it out. seems there is going to be a "band" there tonight from 11 - 1. saints preserve us, this was going to be awful. and it was!!! and that was just there warm-up. at 1030 pm a security guy knocked on the door and said that we would be given 1/2 a nights rate refunded. it wasn't enough! finally morning came, checked out, got the key 5 $ back and 33.33 $ refunded. it was a forgetible experience.

This "hotel" is a glorified hostel, and a poor one at that. The outside and lobby are the only updated areas. The manager on duty was unwelcoming and even rude at times. One issue I had was that the wifi was not working when I arrived. The manager said "I gave 3 other people the password and they didn't complain." As I was walking away, another customer came up to her and said the wifi wasn't working. I inquired again later, but it was never fixed. I was only here for 1 night and needed to do some work online, the main reason I wanted to spent a night in a hotel. My room was directly above the deck of one of the two(!) bars in this "hotel". Since there was no A/C in my room and it was stuffy, I had to have the windows open on this summer night. The outdoor bar deck music was blaring directly into my windows. I found empty soda bottles from the previous resident next to my bed. There was only one electric outlet and it was in an inconvenient place. The furnishings were dumpy, as expected, and the room was awkwardly chopped up, as though it used to be 2 rooms. The bathroom and shower curtain were a little moldy and thankfully I have no mobility issues as there was a only a very narrow space to enter the shower between the shower and the wall. I'm 41 years old and this is the worst place I have ever stayed, in all aspects, and I've traveled all over Thailand even.
