Read the reviews concerning room size, but failed to recognize the warnings. Small is not correct term for the size of either the "standard double" or "smaller double" room. Microscopic is the term. We are veteran world travelers, and have endured many surprises in accommodations, but this one is at the top of the list. The standard bed is a narrow double by US standards. The room itself I exactly 18" wider than the bed, leaving no maneuvering room for two people.
The bathroom was clean and actually updated, but any individual of normal stature would find it difficult to sit on the toilet. The space in front of the toilet is so small, your knees will hit the wall! Not exaggerating, American travelers will find this hotel difficult to use, and most will find it absolutely unacceptable. Front lobby is minuscule, and manned by folks who have a bit of trouble with the Queen's English. Neither staff person we interacted with were inclined to help beyond the basic, "Sorry, we can't do that." Or "We have no change." We left after the first night.
This is the poorest excuse for the Choice Hotels brand we have ever encountered. We are Choice Privileges Diamond members for several years, and we seldom pan a property, but this one does not deserve your consideration. Leave it for the Sudanese or Nigerians.
