3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
I booked for a 5 night stay only to be contacted by the hotel requesting I call Expedia to shorten my stay, they stated there were no available rooms for my final night. After making the change to checkout a day earlier, I looked at multiple sites including the hotels own website and there were ample rooms available. I did appreciate the early check-in, the only positive of this hotel. The room was ok, unfortunately like many hotels, cleaning needs attention, long black hairs everywhere. The ceiling in the entry was damaged and covered with mould, not something one wants to see when entering a so called clean room. Also above this was an extremely loud motor that when starting up sounded like the door was being kicked in. Not a pleasant room. No VIP perk was offered during my stay. Would not reccomend this Hotel be part of the VIP experience, they just don't meet the criteria. Much better value at places nearby that are closer to the waterfront.
