Property was extremely outdated. Patio was dirty. Everything in the room was plugged into extensions and power bars but room was clean. Overall very disappointed for the price

My only complaint is the bed. It was firm which I like but could have used a foam topper or at least a mattress pad. I extended my stay and had to switch rooms and the second rooms bed was great! Not sure if it’s price related but the difference in beds seems pretty lame

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Friendly staff, nice and quiet location, walking distance to most shops and restaurants. Situated on the bank of the Bow river. The hotel shows its age but even if it is not as modern as the new hotels the rooms were very clean and the king bed was very comfortable.
