The room that I stayed in smelled so bad! It must have been a smokers room for years and years and they just never changed the carpet/curtains/paint when they switched it to non-smoking. My parents stayed in another room down the hall, and theirs was just as smelly.
Besides the horrible smell there was also a long, black hair on the pillow case - not even hiding, just sitting right there - that made me question the cleanliness of the sheets and towels. And, the room was facing the road so there were people walking by on the sidewalk right outside the glass door (which were open to air the place out) and noise from the passing cars.
Reading the other reviews on tripadvisor, its hard to believe that they're talking about the same place. The only way I can understand how people can call this place clean, quiet and worth the cost is that there must be some rooms that have been renovated and others that haven't.
Based on my experience, I would stay anywhere else but here. Really, I would have preferred to sleep in my van because at least I know that when I wake up in the morning I won't sell like an ashtray.
