2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
We specifically chose this hotel based on the picture for room having a couch in the room. We needed a 3rd sleeping place in our room for the number of people in our family. Our room did not have one. The bathroom is divided into 2 rooms. One with the toilet and shower, it was barely large enough to move around in...the other with the sink. The bagged "continental" breakfast was not good. The orange juice was warm, the pastries were not good, and the coffee was super bitter. Our room was so loud, outside was a bus depot/repair place. They were loud all hours of the evening and night. One upside was the bottles of water available by the reception area.
