Overall, this hotel was pretty good, but had some room for improvement.
The biggest problem with this hotel is the gym. I travel a lot for business, so I rely on hotel gyms quite a bit. This is the worst hotel gym that I have found in awhile. There weren't any towels or any anti-bacterial wipes to clean the machines. There is a TV in the gym, but no remote to change the channel (I asked and was told it was lost). There are only 3 machines - one of which was broken. The bike had a wonky peddle and the electronics didn't work, so you couldn't set a workout program or even reliably set the resistance. There aren't any free weights either.
My room was clean and reasonably comfortable, although a desk chair for the desk would have been nice. I had to move an armchair to the desk in order to have a place to sit.
The common areas were pretty good and the breakfast reasonably well-stocked. Nothing out of the everyday, but decent.
The staff were also ok - they could be more welcoming and friendly, but they weren't rude or anything, just not as welcoming as with most HI properties.
So, overall it wasn't a bad stay, just not up to what I have come to expect from HI properties.
