Just stayed here a few days ago. The place was very clean and the staff quite friendly. The breakfast was very tasty and free. This is definitely the place to stay when you visit metropolis. Especially if you have little kids like I do. Once again, great place to stay!

We have stayed here in the past and it is okay. Over the years it is looking worn and in need of an update. The rooms are clean, but looking shabby. The beds are old and not comfortable. A one night stay is do-able..
