There was nothing specifically wrong with this hotel. Room was OK, clean, but just tired, worn and dated. We had a balcony facing the mountains. A nice surprise was that it backed on to a nice little golf course so we were able to play several rounds by just walking out the back door. While the hotel is walking distance to town, it is a long walk. We had to taxi back with our "beverages and snacks". There is a small Casino just a few blocks away. Breakfast buffet was very well stocked. There is no Wifi but they give you a something like 20 minutes daily at no charge if you sit in the lobby. There was a sign outside that advertised Bike Rentals but when we went to rent them Front Desk said none were available because they had been stolen. They took the sign down. There is a car rental stand in the lobby, staffed for a few hours in the morning with a sign saying "we have cars". However, when we went to rent one, they only had cars available at the airport, not the hotel, and we would have to taxi both ways for pick up and drop off. One shock was that we left a cookie on the table in our room one morning and when we returned 5 hours later it was covered in ants. Very freaky. Front desk staff was unfazed by it and told me that just happens. Staff were pleasant.
