This hotel was exactly what I paid for-cheap. The bed was comfortable and clean-I did sleep well-there was plenty of hot water-and a fridge (nice touch). BUT, the room was outdated, the wallpaper was, well...wallpaper. No elevator at this place and no restaurant on site. Open hallways, so not very secure feeling-especially when the maid opened our door hours before checkout. Only a slide latch between us and her.
The walls had obviously patched (not very well) holes. The grout was damaged, the toilet tank was a questionable color (is that mold?) and the toilet flushed V-E-R-Y slowly. The towels however were soft and fluffy.
When we checked in, there was a loud graduation party going on in the meeting hall. When we checked out , there was a loud church service in progress. Odd combination. The staff were friendly and polite, even helpful. Just remember, you get what you pay for.
