the friendly staff, the price, and the cleanliness
Very well situated near plenty of shopping and restaurants, good complementary breakfast, reliable Wi-Fi, helpful staff (we forgot toothpaste and they gave us a packet of it), convenient parking. There's a pool too, but it was far too cold for us to use it. The fridge, television, and microwave all worked well. Great value overall.
Our smoking room smelt strongly of cigarettes, beyond what's typical, and the tub and some other surfaces were covered in burn marks. There was one burn through one of our sheets. The light fixture in the bathroom was crumbling, the paint on the ceiling was peeling, and the room was not thoroughly cleaned (a used match on the floor, hair in the bed). The room's heater was not very strong _ we had to keep it on high throughout the night.
