I stayed in this hotel in august 2008 (sorry but only just getting around to joining tripadvisor). There were two reasons why I stayed here. Location and price.
As usual before booking I checked pictures etc and it looked ok. On my arrival however I found these to be unaccurate.
On arrival the outside of the hotel didn't look too bad. Like most in the area it had that art deco look to it.
Inside the reception area was not too bad either. It looked clean, lots of seating and it gave me hope that the reviews I read before booking were wrong. Unfortunately they were not.
The first room we were given looked like the door had been kicked in. It didn't lock properly and the room itself was disgusting. There was mould all over the walls so it smelled quite bad, the air conditioning didn't work and neither did the TV. We went straight back downstairs and asked for a different room. The second room we were given was pretty much the same as the first with the exception that the door worked and the air conditioning was sort of working. We decided to settle for the lesser of two evils.
The only reason that I did not vote this terrible is due to the location which is directly opposite the Delano so you're near the beach. Also Lincoln road is not too far away.
Personally I would not stop here again.
