    Look the other way

    The room smells terrible no bathroom or any service in the room.when I try to change the room to a bigger one they want to charged me double. I have to leave the hotel right away and find a different one just because the service and the room Don’t look like the pictures at all. Don’t recommend this to any one even if you have to pay more look for another one.

    Property is so dark and old. Receptionist is wearing dirty shirt and jeans so not presentable. The rooms are not well lit and you have to share room with a stranger!

    Check in at any time. Clean and well furnished place with friendly staff. Breakfast was a bit lacking but I can't really complain because the stay was so good for the price.

    This property was fun to stay at and would be even funner during a normal, non-COVID 19 time. Staff was friendly and it was in a great location!

    This place has a great location & is a great value. Guests here get a free pass for two to the nearby Kingston Mines blues club. That's a $24 value although some restrictions do apply.
