      Nice area!

      We had a smoking room :(

    • 7.4

      The bed and pillow are very comfy, the room is quiet and with black out courtains. If you only are going to sleep is good and I will recommend. Don't expect any luxury, is just the basics. The bathroom is clean but old, white titles white tub and that is it. Is not located in downtown and you don't have anything close by to visit. It is like 15 minutes from downtown by car. It is located next to the highway I-10. It doesn't have a lobby, just a window to contact the clerk. As I said if you are only going to sleep I will recommend, it is very basic but clean and comfy

      It is basic, don't expect luxury, or any type of breakfast or commodity , it is just for sleep

      Clean Room

      Very Expensive for what it offers, i stayed at same type of hotels for half the price. Also it said spa bath in room but this isnt true. The receptionist said this is Booking's fault as they have advised them several time that they dont have spa bath. Wifi was working poorly. It's in front of a freeway so a but noisy, and you cant open the window so the room gets incredibly stuffed.

    • 10.0

      Very comfortable room. Everything functioned as it should. Staff was very helpful with my special requests, i.e. upstairs room and early arival/late check out. I would stay again.

      Took a while for the hot water to reach the shower but it did arrive.

    • 7.4

      Basic place, clean and great Location to walk into Montrose (bars, Restaurants). Great staff, very friendly and helpful.

      A bit on the expensive side

      Advertised washer dryer but none was available.

      Nothing

      The front desk person was so rude and unhelpful. He want me to disconnect an alam that was making noise, but the Alarm was on the Ruffe!!

    • 7.4

      The big family room fit us great (3 queen beds) and the beds were comfortable.

      Kitchen area was small, and while the variety and quality (of breakfast) were good, the quantity was poor. If you're not first to eat, items that run out are not replaced.
