I had the unfortunate ‘pleasure’ of staying ONE night… arrived approximately 4pm after a busy working day combined with travelling. No one was on the reception desk, I used the phone indicated TWICE and waited 25 minutes for someone to come. The reception is musty and unclean, I certainly didn’t like the first impression and it only went downhill from there… the room was large yes, however very dated, paint peeling off the walls, stained furniture, and obvious wear. The bed sheets appeared clean but I have my doubts…
I did attempt to use the iron supplied in the laundry, I turned the power on and it spluttered out everywhere including all over the power cord! Very dangerous!
I had a restless nights sleep and didn’t at all feel safe or secure alone. Upon checkout, again no one on reception, rang through and was told to ‘leave the key on the desk’.
I didn’t choose the ‘Resort’ and wouldn’t recommend it. Loads of potential but in desperate need of some tender loving care and attentive/friendly staff. I have since done some research and found you can stay at the Best Western or Comfort Inn for an extra $25 - $35 per room per night compared to these rates.
Don’t cheap out, you will regret it.
