Overall, this hotel is in BAD need of general maintenance, general cleaning and remodeling. Below is a list (in no particular order)of things that we saw on our stay. 1)Water did not get hot, just luke-warm. We could not take a shower in the A.M. 2) As we entered the room, we noticed the Kitchenette window screen was not installed, and asked for assistance with that. 3)All the window screens were filthy / dirty. 4)They advertise the rooms have A/C , but ours did not work. It's a good thing the weather was mild. The room would be unbearable if it were hot outside. 5)The front door, door screen was too short for the door, and had a 2" gap on the bottom of the door, allowing for insects to crawl into the room...we had several insects in the room, and bathroom. 6)Kitchen sponge was dirty and smelled. We didn't use it...couldn't use it. 7)Bed sheets had rips / holes. 8) Front door was in bad shape, had water damage, was delaminated in areas and looked like it went through a war. Also, door had a 1/4" gap around it, and able to see sunlight through the gap. 9)Lamp shape was broken. It was resting on the hot bulb, and had burn marks. 10)Extra blankets very old, torn, and probably not clean. 11)The old style door key did not work as it should. On average it took 60 seconds just to get the door open. When we asked for assistance from the office people, they said, "I better help, all the door locks are different, some you turn left, some right, some you need to finagle....."
11)The room clock / alarm did not work. 12)Cobb Webs on bathroom window. It looked just like a Halloween Spook House in the U.S.
13)Room was dusty. Many surfaces had a thin layer of dust.
14)We did not use the pool, but it didn't look to appealing, and was probable cold (not heated)
On the positive side, the location was good. Very close to the beach, and some restaurants. The hotel area was quiet, and good for sleeping.
In general, I believe this hotel needs to close down a few rooms, and do a total remodel. Also, the owner/manager needs to train the cleaning staff on better cleaning methods.....cobb webs not good !! Dust, not good !! Insects not good !! Filthy screens not good !!..........
