3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The staff were friendly and the room was clean, but it was unbelievably hot in the room. We stayed on a night when the temperature dropped to nearly -30 and we slept with the windows open, and with no covers on the bed, because the staff told us they couldn't do anything about the heat.
