We stayed here in April 2009, however it seemed that besides ourselves and few other poor souls the rest of the hotel had been taken over by rowdy school trips. The hotels attitude to this was a shrug of a shoulders and agreement that they were worse than was expected. After one night we cancelled the rest of our stay. To their credit the front desk staff did apologise and give a full refund so we left on good terms.
However the school trips did expose the hotels failings such as it is timber construction so you can hear every footstep from the room and corridors above. Additionally the rooms although very large are getting a lot of rough use and are looking tired. Bathroom fitting are worn and marks on the walls are patched rather than repaired. Combined with a dark brown paint scheme this gave the rooms an ‘end of life’ feel.
If you are looking for a cheap, large place to stay with friends who can over look these points then stay here (the six in a room road trip type of thing). If you are with family, or pass by Super 6 motels for Marriott Courtyards while on the road then give this place a miss.
