Recent stay

Stayed for a week at this hotel, last stayed in November 2014 for 1 night only. Whilst the hotel is budget standard it unfortunately appears to continue to slide downhill. Check in was slow and machine would at first not accept credit card which ended up being swiped more than once, not filling you with confidence there would be an overcharge. Room provided on lower floor as requested but although this was requested at time of booking had obviously not been taken into consideration any earlier as a ground floor room had to be sought upon check in. Room was tired, safe did not work whole period of the stay and no plug for bath so could only use shower. Breakfast even since last stay in November has declined, offered as a deluxe breakfast but only provide cereal (one morning only fruit flavoured loops provided), no toast or bagels, waffles available but queue to make them always out the door unless you visited at 630 every morning. Luke warm coffee provided, no hot water only to make hot tea. Rooms were cleaned on daily basis which was good and they were cleaned to a good standard. Hotel served the purpose for theme park visiting but if had to use for longer periods of time would not have been satisfied.

The best thing about my stay was...

AT YOUR PERIL!

We have just stayed here for 8 nights and it was a disaster from beginning to end. We had 2 rooms booked and they could only find one - we were forced to pay $800 up front for our stay despite having already paid. Our booking agent resolved the issue and the hotel then took the money 3 more times along with numerous other charges to our card account which we are still waiting for! There is Mould everywhere, this place is cheap so we didn't expect the Ritz but this place is disgusting! Staff mostly helpful - Manager about as much use as a chocolate teapot! Needs renovating desperately.

Oh, dear!

We've been staying at this hotel for a few years, but sadly it's gone downhill. I had to ask for clean bedding after 8 days, was told it would be changed the next day. Another day later we were given it and had to change the beds ourselves!!! Our toilet overflowed twice in one day. A few days later we noticed drops from the upstairs room and reported it to the handyman, who said he'd fix it. Then we had the most awful overflow with gunge coming from the toilet all over the floor. Disgusting!! I told the front desk at 6.20am and said wait till we go out for breakfast. When we returned it still hadn't been fixed. We went out again at 10 and when we returned the floor where we had put yet more towels down had been cleaned. The floor under the sink was not cleaned during our stay, as there was a small thing at the wall which we couldn't reach, and it was still there when we left. Clean towels were taken away, and sometimes towels were not left! There was no apology at all regarding the toilet overflow, or a refund offered to us for the mess we had to stay in. We will not be going back.

The best thing about my stay was...

The staff are very friendly and it's cheap.
