The rooms are quite small. Normally, this shouldn't be a hindrance if it's laid out well. It wasn't. They have a large bureau, that would accommodate someone staying for a month, but no desk. They could have easily replaced the oversized and inpractical bureau with a writing table/desk.
I had a shared bathroom, but the other folks with whom I shared the bath kept locking my door from the bathroom side , so to block off my access to the common bathroom.
The room had roaches and when I complained, hoping to get some concession I was told that this was the "season" and since the hotel is located in a dry area (Avalon), this, is common. However, my friends staying at other hotels didn't have this problem.
Internet service is only available in the small lobby, but even there they have no tables at all to set your laptop down on. Great planning on the part of management. Moreover, with the installation of a simple "access point" (costs about $75) every room could have had wireless.
