Great Location, clean and comfortable rooms, but thats about it. We found the air conditions very loud and even switched rooms only to find exactly the same problem in the new room. The tv's only having a few channels. Happy to only stay a few days

Nice budget place, friendly service, big rooms. But all through the night we were tormented by sheets stinking with nasty cigarette odor. Unacceptable for a non-smoking room.
