I booked this hotel anticipating a little more after reading the reviews. The room itself was okay, though it definetly had a musty smell. The first day was actually pretty decent, we were going to stay there 3 nights and were quite happy with the location. It is about an eight minute walk from the beach.
The problems developed after housekeeping visitied the first day. They were in our room because the bed was made, but none of the towels had been replaced, leaving us with no towels, and the plastic cups and ice bucket bag wasn't either.
Another problem cropped up when requesting a wake-up call. The front-desk is staffed primarily by what appears to be high-school aged boys who play computer games all day. We also saw one of the front-desk staff members hassling people in front of the hotel to impress some girls by trying to sell goldfish. Very unprofessional. Anyway, we wanted to see the sunrise. Well guess what, they forgot to set it and we woke up 20 minutes too late.
The biggest issue though was the water temperature in the showers. The only way that could describe it is dangerous. The water would vary from ice cold to scalding hot. We didn't have kids with us, but I would seriously consider not staying here with children based solely on this. At one point, I had to jump out of the shower because of the temp change and almost getting scalded.
Overall, I'd say, don't stay here. Stay at the Avenue Inn or Avenue Inn 2 after checking them out, they seem to be a good value.
