28 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: All the bedding and inside of the building is new. What a great kitchen!!! Loved the kitchen. Staff was really nice and helpful, except for the cleaner that kicked me out of the bathroom. Good beds and decent breakfast. close to everything I needed. Great supermarket one block away if you want an Asian experience.

Disliked: I was asked to go to another bathroom in the morning by a short stout latino woman so she could clean it, which is fine, but shouldn't you pick a better time to clean the bathrooms, other than in the morning when people are trying to use them? Probably would have been fine, but she was a little gruff about it.

Gemma Clark

22 September 2009 Gemma would recommend this property

Liked: Great facilities. All very new and very clean. Each bed has a lamp, fan and plug sockets! Private shower rooms. Fantastic breakfast and kitchen / dining area. 5 mins from Amtrak station. Only downside is the location is in a bit of a rough area and about 15 min walk from the main town. Overall would def stay there again - in fact I'm heading back again today - and would recommend to friends.
