2/10 Poor

The room was a 10/10 bedroom a “ small” bedroom. That was fine. BUT I had to remove the bedding to ensure the “black” things on the bed were not bugs. We found 1 was a small Bug in the bed sheets. The sheets , pillow cases were not washed and stained. The carpet was Filthy and old. Stains/marks on the walls. The bedding was old and Nobby. We removed the bedding and slept on a blanket from our vehicle. The bathroom Sink was covered in hairs from a man’s shave. The Tv had 1 or 2 channels… even old shows had to be ordered. The iron was old and leaked water all over my shirt when I tried to iron it. Just overall the room was a slum….. it ruined our night in the city. We are not people who have extra high expectations but I expect a place to be clean and presentable when you pay $121.00 for a bedroom. My husband is a rotational worker and his comment was “ the camp rooms are cleaner and more presentable. I can only speak for this room but needless to say we will NEVER EVER stay again or recommend it.

10/10 Exceptional

I've seen the "coloured" row-houses before, but have now had the opportunity to stay in them! The bed was nice, the accommodations were tight [which was expected] but certainly functional, and the continental breakfast was great [someone topped it off between 10pm and 3am, including fresh milk, biscuits and such!]. Terrific, all around!

2/10 Poor

Stayed for one evening. After a 12 hour flight we arrived late at night to find that our bed sheets had not been changed. There was visible hair and the sheets were very wrinkled. When I emailed Expedia about the incident they sided with the cleaning staff and ensured me it was clean. Would not stay here again or recommend for others.
