I stayed in this hotel for two nights in February. The room number might be 113 as I could not recall clearly. The room looks OK. At the second night, I started feeling itchy on my left thigh and I thought that might be allergy so I didn't pay too much attention on it. However in the following two days after I left the hotel, reddish and itchy bumps started to emerge on my trunk and extremities. There were over thirty bumps on my body at the peak. That is really a terrible experience for me and I learned a lesson that I should always check the bed sheet every time I checked into a hotel room from then on. I admit that I didn't see bed bugs with my eyes since I never thought of the possibility during my stay, however all the manifestation of the bumps is in accordance with typical bites of bed bugs. So I would suggest you think carefully before you book this hotel.
As a side note, the hotel has free DVDs for guests to borrow however the DVD case that I picked didn't have any disc inside which is quite disappointing.
