One of the worst of the Hotel to Stay . Horrible house keeping and terrible staff. just grand entry and equally worst ahead to see. Shady rooms, smelly & dirty linens with not functioning Rest Rooms. Totally waste of money .

I must say, that this hotel left me spell bound with awesome and well done rooms, a swimming pool that had crystal clear blue water and room service that catered to my every need. I had been to this place on a business meet and was glad to know that they have such a luxurious and lavish property which caters... More

I think they really need to renovate this place. Totally sucks. I am not getting words to describe how bad it is. I ordered omelet and there was no pepper, salt, sauce and cutlery to eat it. I really don't want to describe the bathroom. It looks like a haunted Manson.

To be honest there are not enough expletives in the English language to describe just what an absolute dump and rip-off this place is. Avoid at all costs: Key issues: 1- slow, slow slow and crappy elevators - bad layout and design in general, fire hazard 2- the carpets in the entire hotel should be replaced and all decor redone...

I have visited Checkers hotel with my hubby for a friend's reception, didnt get a chance to stay. One of my friend's wedding reception held at the hall 'Cleopatra' of checkers hotel. The hall was pretty decent, accommodated less than 100 ppl, they have arranged dinner at "Oasis". Food was of mediocre taste, it was buffet system. Starters were good.

This hotel is the worst hotel i have ever been in. The rooms are not cleaned and the carpets lie there for years. The bathrooms have only tubs. What will the elders do? The lift in the hotel mostly doesn't work. Please avoid this hotel. It is very bad.

You could not find another hotel that can charge you and give you filthy bed, bath water, roaches etc. nothing but a dump. I am surprised this is a legal property that can do business. Dare to eat and drink anything there. Please stay away.
