Positive Reviews

Parking is Plentiful and Free

When staying at this hotel, you'll get the advantages of free, ample parking. Guests appreciated that there was always plenty of room to accommodate their vehicles and they didn't' have to deal with the potential hassles of paid parking.

Negative Reviews

The Rooms Are Very Tired and Basic

Although guests usually didn't have major problems with their rooms, they frequently found the accommodations to be very tired and in need of attention. Also, the accommodations are very sparse, so it's not realistic to expect anything fancy.

Some Rooms Smell Musty

Guests detected a strange odour that many thought was mustiness. Although most were able to get used to the aroma eventually, it was sometimes considered a noticeable detractor. That was especially true when guests were put in rooms with windows that couldn't be opened.

Many Steps and Uneven Floors

This is a property that boasts hundreds of years of history. As a result, the architecture is unlike what you'd probably notice in modern buildings. For example, the floors are uneven and there are numerous small steps to navigate, so be sure to mind your footing.
