Worst Ever Hotel!
So sorry to say that this Hotel is the worst ever hotel which I have been! The washroom is so dirty with yellow muddy on the bathtub. The wall is lack of maintainenance. The room is uncomfortable for you to stay even more than a minute. I finally escaped the Hotel and found another one in Gurney!

It seems like the hotel needs revamping as the room smells stale. Maybe it is off season so the bath towels stink as well. Breakfast was okay and they do alternate some dishes on the buffet.
