Booked blind through hotwire and very pleased. We were only here two nights but our room met our needs - internet, HDTV, balcony, welcoming staff and tea and coffee in the lobby. Recommend this HIE - well located near restaurants and shopping although you do need a vehicle,

Our room, on the third floor facing the pool, was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have a balcony. The pool was very nice with plenty of chairs... More

I arrived a little late, 11:30pm, and didn't expect a very lively staff since I was tired myself. I met Alfonzo on the way in and even though he is security he had a cheerful expression about him.
