Excellent time here. Was a bit scared the first night because of the other reviews but by day 2 it felt like a home away from home. You get what you pay for. I may invest a bit next-time. For my budget, this was perfect. The pool was amazing. Thank you to the staff for the endless supply of pool... More

I got their last room apparently.... big mistake to take it. $100 a night and it was worse than a hostel. Extremely old and smelly. Walls had stains everywhere and carpets were completely stained. The air conditioning didnt work and it was just yucky!!! Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else. STAY AWAY!

Room itself was acceptable for the lower price point, and it's not far off the main highway. Only issues were the room items - Fridge was boxed in a frame with no extra space so it wasn't working very well, and the room coffee maker was a plastic cup and some instant coffee. AC worked well enough. Staff were super... More

After paying up front for 2 nights, we were shown in to a dark, very smelly room. The pool outside looked good so we were disappointed. The carpet and sheets were stained, there was no coffee maker ( no coffee, creamer etc). There was very little silverware, 1 cup, 1 glass,no dishes, and the basin and sink did not drain... More

I don't mind staying at older hotels/motels...in fact, some real jems can be found by being willing to bypass the shiny, new places...but this isn't one of them. I can sleep comfortably almost anywhere but if I pay for it, I expect it to be clean...this place wasn't. There were stains on the ceiling and carpet, the carpet itself was... More

We were so displeased that we were going to forfeit our room cost but by the time we got there we had difficulty... More

I have no complaints for the price, the exterior needs smartening up and the pool was empty and a bit smelly But the room was clean, in good condition and with decent facilities. at $55 what more do you expect. It's central and you can walk to restaurants, shops etc. and although near the road, noise wasn't a problem.

The front desk was friendly . The room was clean and comfortable. It was close to where we wanted to be. It had everything that you needed. Coffee machine, microwave, fridge. And more, to make you feel at home.The $55 deal was really worth.

First I was asked if I wanted a clean room for full price or a drity room for cheaper... That should have made me leave on the spot but I was tired and just wanted to get to bed.Rented my room, it was a cheap price. Walked in and the first thing I smelt was cat litter and dust. I... More
