“nice place for transit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

.The place was average but i was okay with it because i was actually on business.Although they need to improve on the mosquitoes and the noise on the road.Otherwise i loved the pocket friendliness.One thing though they need to put an elevator.The staff is friendly especially a tall light brown lady at the front desk and George were quite awesome infact all the staff made my stay comfortable.

Room Tip: rooms athe furthest corner are quiet,i actually spent a night at 207.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This hotel is simply terrible. No lift (was on the 4th floor), no power socket in the room, no WiFi - although they advertise there is - but the WiFi when we visited was an old fashioned modem to be shared between the guests. Obviously, that does not work very well without a power socket. Rooms are scruffy, bathrooms even more so. Beds were hard. No hot water as the in-room water heated did not work. Breakfast is horrible. Rats the size of chihuahuas were running around outside after dusk. Just do not stay here.
