Now, take this review with the grain of salt given it's based on a family of 3...I imagine this review might be 4 stars if I were traveling solo.
Pros: cheap, clean and modern room (fixtures, bed, all were nice), free parking, breakfast included, respectable self serve coffee machine, good outlet location(s) in the room
Cons: ultra simple buffet breakfast, separate toilet and shower (still hate this no matter how many years I'll live in Europe), smallish rooms, 2-3km walk to town center, plentiful parking, NO fridge in the room (standard double).
Overall, a nice place to stay. We were there in November and the first night of 2, there was literally ONE other couple at the hotel that we could see. One car in the parking lot, and one couple at breakfast and the hotel was DEAD. That said, there was no mention of a room upgrade or the like. My wife and I, traveling with a small kid wondered how much better of an impression we might have had at this hotel had we been offered a slightly better room....I mean, really, would it have been ANY trouble at all for the desk person to just plop us in a bigger room and mention that they were doing so as to earn some brownie points from us as guests? If this is the age of review driven sales, then they failed. If I set aside that little gripe, then I'm ok with having stayed here. It's a tossup if I would default back to Oceania in lieu of finding something better for the money though.
