The staff are super friendly and helpful. Location is good. But these are unfortunately the only good things I have to say about the hotel. The hotel itself is quite old. There are visible renovations but mostly are cosmetic. There are still prominent issues with the room and hotel itself. The main issue I have with the hotel itself is that the elevator is steps away from the front entrance with no access control. There’s also a staircase right next to it wide open. The front desk is further inward, which means anyone can literally walk up the stairs to the hotel hallway without front desk noticing. This makes me feel quite insecure. The room itself also have a number of issues. The bed is not very comfortable. The bedsheet doesn’t cover all the way to the end of the bed somehow so the foot is touching some weird bumpy fabric which I don’t know if it gets changed. More over, the room is loud: water pipe, doors inside and outside creek super loudly. My sleep quality is at rock bottom the few nights I spent here. The bathroom door feels sticky to the touch, which reminds me of motels. The bathroom uses motion sensing lights only which means when you are in the shower, the light can turn off randomly and you’ll have to open the shower door and wave at the switch. It became annoying real fast. I don’t think I will opt for this hotel in the future.
