No hot water, and LOTS of ants!

Dirty and slow

The hotel was dirty, the staff slow to check in and check out and my credit card information was compromised in the process.

Horrible front desk couldn't check out at 8am as planned...

by nataliemY6847LF on 09 Dec 2014 (Couple Traveller)

Horrible front desk couldn't check out at 8am as planned before my appointment due to front desk clerk no where to be found so ended up having to go downtown for my appointment and then coming back to upper james to check out at 10 when a desk clerk was finally around. Me and 2 others where waiting in check in area for over 20 minutes before leaving
