I have been a guest at MP in the distant past. So I was comfortable with making my reservations here for a condo unit for one week. In the past (6 years ago) it was clean, affordable, responsive and up to date. It is still off the beaten path, with rutted roads and smashed dead rats in the street leading up to the hotel. The owners took the time to paint the outside of the hotel. The results were a lot like putting lip stick on a pig...still a pig. The desk staff was clearly more interested in their personal grooming than greeting me as I tried to check in. As I approached my room, I was over taken by the strong smell of ciggarette smoke in the halls and elevator. The room did not smell much better. I did a quick inspection of the room before the bell boy left and sent him on with a list of repairs that the room needed. This list included a sofa that had three large rips in it with the stuffing hanging out. A broken hot water heater, no shower head, dirty floor, mold on the shower curtain, stains (of questionable nature) on the comforter and ants in the kitchen. The internet is overpriced and it allows other users to break in and use you time. The staff admits this but will not compensate you for your loss. At one point, while I was on line, the hotel suffered a brown out for about an hour. The connection was lost and when they finally got the connection back 24 hours later, I found that I had lost all of the remaining time I had on my card. Again, the staff or (non-existant) manager refused to compensate me for the loss. The worst part about the stay was the theft of my property. Particulary my towels and pillow. I do not like the small towels that you would find in these hotels so I provide my own. They took two of them and denied (lied) to my face about the matter. Since the manager never came in (or so they say) I could never get compensation or return of the towels or the pillow. Other food items disappered from time to time, however this was just more evidence of the dishonesty. The hotel is long over due for a major upgrade. Tiles on the floor are cracked, broken furniture line the halls and the walls in the hall way are filthy. I would suggest a floor by floor upgrade to include good quality paint, fix the tiles, put in a coffee maker, small microwave and a desk. Get rid of the plastic table and chairs that were ment for outdoor use and put in real furniture. The closets also need hangers and doors. My particular closet had one door but the other was removed for some reason. The pool was nasty with mold and algie. With a little attention and a replacement or training of the staff this hotel can once again be a nice place to stay.
