Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The room is small but adequate. The shower is especially good. Parking was a challenge since we were the last customers to arrive, and had to park in a corner between 2 large half-tons.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Terrible service and the staff were very under trained and even said so. For the 10 minutes I was there they tried to charge me over $100!! It took me 4 times to call and get it rectified. And even then they were reluctant. Very very bad service !
