This hotel is an older Spanish style architecture and not with updated room amenities. I noticed one wing of the hotel is currently being renovated. The hotel is surrounded by a deteriorated parking lot running the perimeter of the building, no pot holes but severely cracked. The room doors open onto an open central area, my front door opened to the pool.
It looked like all of the exit gates to the parking lots required key cards. The gate nearest my room did not lock and remained unsecured the entire time I was staying here. The key card reader was broken. Anyone could enter the guest area via this gate without a key card.
My room door was a typical steel door with a dead bolt and a flap lock. 6” from the door, on the locks side, was a window. Breaching the window and reaching in could easily unlock both locks. Value of a room is worthless if I have to not-sleep worrying about security. I could see day light at the top and bottom of the door.
Parking is free. Breakfast is free. Wi-fi is not free.
The bedroom of the two room suite was very clean and comfortable. Newer bedding, matching décor. But the other room was a hodgepodge of décor, miss matched furniture from several styles. Both rooms were spacious. The theme was orangish tones.
I stayed during a 3 day weekend and the walkway outside by 3rd floor room was busy late into the night.
I would not stay here again. The hotel missed badly on my perception of safety.
