We were a last minute family traveling to Brighton. As you may know, it can be a bit tricky finding hotel rooms that can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children, without buying 2 separate rooms. So, we were ok to select the reasonably priced 1.5 star hotel as figured we could endure 1 night so long as we were together. Overall, the hotel, which is in a super location, is actually fine. It has a very pleasant, simple feel. In fact, our room, while on the lower ground floor (which I despise), looked fairly decent and was surprisingly spacious. It had NO art or decoration on the walls except for 1 long mirror and while the furniture was clearly low quality it looked alright in the room. The carpet was in need of replacement. The beds were just fine. The bedding looked clean. The bathroom was definitely creepers... The shower was a tiny, junky box. The shower head would not stay in its holder and looked slimy. The wall did have markings on it and the floor had tons of old moldy stains which, I suspect, came from the shower not draining properly and spilling out on to the floor. I showered after a day at the beach but decided to forgo it the day of departure. Also, the base boards in the bathroom were so dust infected, I am sure they had never been cleaned. On a positive note, the sink, toilet and bathroom fixtures looked brand new! Lastly, the breakfast at the hotel was just juice, coffee/tea, cereal and bread. Very basic. Unfortunately we paid £20, via Octopus Travel, more on our reservation for that. No good. So, again, it was fine for 1 night, but we will not plan to go back. We were ready to get out of there in the morning! While I will not answer yes to the "will you recommend it" question, I think if the price is right, you could give the hotel a try and probably be ok for a night or two.
