There couldn't be a better location than for this hotel. The view off the balcony was beautiful! Placed in a very convenient location. Such kind, helpful and courteous staff. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Beautiful landscaping and great up-keep.

The hotel is nice, our bedroom was clean, there is free parking, the staff are really friendly, but the breakfast is disappointing... There are not many choices of food and you leave hungry... Also, I don't know why, but our room was not cleaned one day...

It was relatively clean, but it was scary because the Police had an office in the hotel. The breakfast was 40 people fighting over one toaster and canned fruit. It's very outdated and old hotel -- really suitable for budget limited folks (particular men) who are looking for a place to sleep and that's it. This was no vacation paradise....

William21485, Manager at Stadium Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Polo Brown, I do not feel we are laughable, but a budget friendly clean hotel. The police station is a great addition to the hotel and is welcomed by most. I never heard of fighting over our continental breakfast toaster either. We apologize for your unpleasant experience. Regards, Manager
