      convient off the freeway

      not very clean, or well maintained. Our room had a hole in the wall, lobby very shabby

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      large rooms and on-site lounge

      outside needs updating, pool/spa not very clean

    • Group of friends

      Freeway close although you could not see the sign from the freeway

      The room was large but lighting was not adequate for the size of the room. The foldout bed was AWFUL...I'm sure a new mattress could help that. Lastly, we went down to breakfast at 8:45. There was no bread, no muffins, no bagels, no coffee and the only piece of fruit was one small apple. The only things available to eat were waffles and cereal. I wasn't happy at all.

      Such an awful experience it was amusing in a perverse way.

      We arrived to be told that the only room available was next to the hotel bar and we would be likely to hear noise until it closed at 2am (which was indeed the case and the noise was very loud and oppressive, with loud music and loud drunken men smoking outside our room door Until 230 am). I was told there was no alternative room available but when I later returned to reception to use the wifi (which did not work in my room) I heard a room being offered to someone who had not previously booked. This experience has made me question whether I will use Booked.net again, at least for these lower end hotels. Also room although clean was terribly smelly. Overall this is the worst hotel experience I have ever had, thankfully it was only for one night and I'd not ruin our overall holiday.

      What a dump, phones don't work, noisy and very beat up. Oh yes the bathroom was filthy.

      Should turn this place into a pet zoo.

      The bed was about the only redeeming factor. The price was also reasonable.

      The hotel was just plain ugly, old, and run down.

    • Family with children

      There was a hole in the bath tub covered by a rubber bath mat. Very dangerous. Thin walls could hear the people partying next door like they were in the room with me.

    • Family with children

      The size of the rooms were quite large, but you could hear absolutely every squeak from the room next to you. We were planning on going to Pea Soup Anderson's for the night, but they did not post any pictures of their rooms, so we did not take the chance. This was a good value for an overnight stay. They gave us a great rate on an extra room w/ a triple a discount. The cleaning ladies were great, but we couldn't anyone to help us with the Wi-Fi system that was not working.

      Paper thin walls. They need someone to continue to attend to the breakfast fare because the food ran out and it became a mess rather quickly

      The windmill at the front .

      It is right on the side of motorway - doors don't shut properly So there's constantly slamming doors all night People racing remote cars around car park If your intention is to stay up all night with loud music It's the place to go - if you want to sleep give it a miss

    • Older travelers

      The room smelled, the room was dark with one small window, the bathroom faucets squeeked, the hot water was minimal, nothing about the place looked renovated in the last 10 years, The 100.00 we paid was far and away tooooooooooooooo much for this dump. It was awful. Take this one off your list. The pool even looked like it was full of green water. Just awful. No hot coffee in the morning, as they advertised a complimentary breakfast. No nothing, and no one around to help replenish the coffee. Awful, just awful.

    • Group of friends

      No wifi, although advertised. Lights in room kept going out and back on. Almost every towel was stained.

    • Couple

      The service was a little lacking. I had to go down to the lobby to pick up an iron and ironing board because there wasn't enough staff to bring it to my room. The towels could have been a little cleaner. The tv randomly turned on several times during the night. The location seemed nice at first, but then turned out to be a little sketchy since the hotel had a bar and pool hall attached to it. I heard some people getting a little out of control during the evening.

    • Older travelers

      It was convenient and reasonably priced.

      Only one person at the desk during busy check-in time.

    • Older travelers

      Didn't like much although cleaning staff very helpful.

      It was very old (chipped paint, especially bathroom), smelled musty and unclean. Bed was new yet uncomfortable. Air conditioner didn't consistently cool room. Breakfast skimpy.

    • Family with children
      5.4

      Clean rooms.

      I was told there was a pool and a jacuzzi Pool was cold... that was okay... I knew we could enjoy the jacuzzi. But the jacuzzi water was warm- not hot and no jets were working... I asked and the office staff didn't know how to fix it. Breakfast was way too crowded no matter what time you went to the lobby. One first morning there was only 1 line and people had to wait for those making waffles just to get to other items of food... Next morning there were two lines- one for waffles and one for other items which did help. Personnel could have explained that to guests. When I complained the following day I would have liked a discount or something... very disappointed with the service and amenities. Need to update your televisions and fix the jacuzzi.
