If you long for the days you were an enlisted man in the army, you might like this hotel. (We were told by another guest that the Hotel was in fact barracks) If army barracks are not your thing, you are going to hate it. I found it poorly maintained, incredibly overpriced, with very poor service and with a staff with a terrible attitude. In addition, we expected to be cheated on our bill, as we had already observed others complaining as they checked out and we were not disappointed. We were over-billed by almost two hundred of dollars and the person at the desk was either completely stupid or an expert at stonewalling anyone reviewing their bill for accuracy. We finally gave up and accepted a smaller, but still incorrect adjusted bill, as we had seen others do.
