At first I was happy to have arrived, but after a full day of traveling the main desk clerk would not leave us alone and give us the room keys. She just kept on talking and hounding us like crazy. I was traveling with a group of 4 friends. We had a room right next to the reception desk and every morning starting at 7 am we would be awakened by the loud and obnoxious receptionist. We could not close the windows because some were broken (the glass) and were missing pieces. The bathroom had a weird faucet that was hard to operate. I found a bunch of other broken/missing items that should have been fixed/replaced around the hotel. We made the mistake of booking a car from the hotel. We ended up paying at least double what the car rental was worth. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE! The "clerk from hell" charged as a $20/day commission. Can you believe it? and when we found out about this, she would not cancel bc. she told us that this would require a hefty cancellation fee (which she did not tell us about). The young people who live in the hotel and help/work there seem to be like slaves of the receptionists and the owner. It's an awful atmosphere. DO NOT STAY HERE!!
