Our stay coincided with New Year, so a VERY LARGE contingent of related guests was booked in. Some smoked in their rooms (clear no smoking signs up every where), were very noisy (room doors left open with TVs blaring) and completely took over the pool area, making it impossible for other guests to enjoy the facilities.

The hotel is old but well maintained. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. great breakfast selection and the hotel also hosted a banquet for 200+ people and they did an excellent job. Early the next morning everything was clean and ready for the breakfast service

We booked the court yard room, expecting it to lead into a court yard or somewhere close to a court yard...it didn't. Besides that, the room was old, gave an air of not being clean, was dark, lacked decor, the air conditioner was old, the tv didn't work and there was no remote for the tv to begin with. The... More
