    This hotel need updating and upgrading.

    Out-dated decor, bad paint job bathroom door. Slight odour. It’s terrible how there is no bathroom vent.

    It was in downtown so everything was accessible. The room was ok. Bed was comfortable. I found a few dirty spots but not a big deal. The washroom is tight and small.
