A nice basic place to stay. The staff was very kind and helpful. The location is always a plus, as it is so easy to get to anywhere in the city. The rooms are simple and cosy. New mattresses, some new televisions, and new windows all add to the ambiance.

The location is excellent since it is close to Chinook center and nearby restaurants. The cleanliness of the room was impressive but the breakfast selection should be improved.

Needless to say the hotel was not full the second day we stayed. We felt $184 was rather overpriced for the standard of hotel.The front desk staff were...

1. Right after opening up the door i really smell some wierd smell which was not pleasant at all. 2. As it's super hot i turned the air conditioning on (which gave me the feel of riding in a helicopter) and set it on the lowest. Even after 45 to 50 mins it doesn't cool the room at all. It's...
