At 4:30pm, when a group of six women checked in right next door to us, proceeded to drag all the pool chairs to right outside their (our) room, and started carrying on, we asked to be moved. "No rooms available" according to the desk clerk.
They left for dinner and upon their return at 9pm, the party resumed, louder and rowdier than ever. At midnight, one passed out right in front of our door. I called the desk, she came to their room, said, "someone complained," had to help haul the passed out woman to her feet, and the party simply moved inside to the room. At 1:30, with the tv blasting and the hollering escalating, I called to complain again. At this point, the same clerk who told us no rooms were available agreed to move us ... but, why should we have to haul all our stuff to another room in the middle of the night, rather than stopping the noise?
Let me say here: the owner of the hotel did make it right the next day. We didn't pay, as we shouldn't. Credit for that. But we got less than 2 hours sleep.
But, this hotel is right on the cusp of being very bad. Everything needs a coat of paint, a thorough cleaning, refreshing, etc. There were many unsavory characters hanging around--men without shirts drinking beer in the courtyard, another who appeared to be urinating in the nearby bushes. I did not feel secure.
When I went to get coffee in the morning, there was none made, even though the sign on the machine said "coffee available from 6am till 10am". It was 7:10am. No breakfast was included.
On another note. This is yet another so-called "pet friendly" hotels that charge $15 for the privilege. The carpet was so ingrained with dirt that a dog could do nothing to hurt it. Travelers with well behaved dogs must start taking a stand against these gratuitous fees.
