Poor room service and lousy location

Reasonable price. Nothing else
Traveled with family with two young kids. Generally the price is reasonable. That's the only advantage of this hotel. The room furniture is dated and needs upgrading. Bathroom tiles are filthy and and needs thorough scrubbing. Having a soak in the bath tub is not recommended. Breakfast buffet is filling enough but variation is minimal.
