The pictures are deceiving and makes it look way better than it actually is. I've stayed at better looking hostels and you can get a...

I had booked a pet friendly family room two weeks in advance. When we arrived I was told that they had no pet friendly family rooms available and had to pay for a second room. The hallway smelled like stale beer and is dimly lit. The room was ok, nothing special but adequate for what we needed. The air conditioner...

Hello Andrew and Candice, Thank you for your kind review. It's not the Ritz as we said, and it's great that you appreciate that... The great thing is that you and your pet can be together, and we try to place as few restrictions on your stay as we possibly can! Hope to see you again, Regards, Charles.

Low price and accommodation is clean and acceptable for an overnight stay when you need a location close to the airport. Price includes breakfast with toast, cereal and juice. Bonus! Beds are comfortable. Everything works as expected. Parking limited so I parked in a nearby street. No drama.

Hello Mark, thank you for taking the time to review us. Our parking is limited, but happily we don't often have any major overflow. We do have a few backup areas we use which are close. If there's ever a problem our friendly staff will do what they can to help! Really appreciate your comment that everything works as expected....
