Positive Reviews

A basic room that's good for a short term stay.

The rooms offer the basic essentials needed for short stays. They're not bad for the price, and give you pretty much all you need for a temporary stop between travels. It's a decent option while touring the city or having to attend an interview or appointment.

Great Wi-Fi signal in private and public rooms.

It's a refreshing occurrence that steady and strong Wi-Fi reception is possible here. The signals are consistent in the rooms, which means the common area is an additional option for going online, rather than a necessity.

Safe atmosphere with friendly, non-intrusive staff.

The staff at McDonald Road will happily advise how best to see the city, however also keep enough of a distance so that they're not too intrusive or pushy. They also help provide a comforting and safe atmosphere, for you to leave and return to at your leisure.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are not very clean due to poor housekeeping.

Housekeeping needs to do a much better job, effort-wise as well as in timeliness. The rooms are not always up to par upon check-in, and getting someone to refresh them during your stay can be difficult. Low prices are still not an excuse for poor upkeep.

Very small room and bathroom not worth the price.

Travellers happy that the room costs meet the budget may still be disappointed with the actual sizes of the room and bathroom. The space, furniture, and facilities are smaller than thought of, and can make for uncomfortable sleeping and use.

Essentials are either sparse or not provided.

The usual supplies such as towels, coffee/tea, and toiletries are either in short supply or not provided at all. You're advised to have your own stuff, or be ready to buy it once settled in.
