A terrible, run-down old hotel! The people at reception could either not speak English or were very unfriendly.
It looked like instead of cleaning, they simply painted over the dirt! The carpet was so dirty, I always wore shoes and was afraid to look under the beds'!!! Our room was small with old furniture and not very clean. The bathroom was very nostalgic....just like back in the 70´s! I don´t think anything has been updated or repaired since then. There was mold all around the bathtub and shower area. The window could not be opened, the rather old A/C unit was loud. SCAREY!
Breakfast was toast, jam in small plastic packages, pre-packaged muffins, fruit if you were early (they ran out of it fast!), coffee...that was about it! All of this served in an unfriendly atmosphere... a few folding chairs and small tables on the front porch where quickly filled, so a lot of guests just sat on the steps to eat! No attempt to improve the situation by the hotel staff. There was, however, free WiFi!
Parking was difficult...you could only park 6 hrs ( after 8am) so we had to come back to fill the meter!
Actually, the area here was not too bad...beach across the street, nice walking, jogging paths. the area seems to be up and coming....a new apt house was just finished 2 properties down....I think the owners of this hotel are just waiting for the next developer to offer them a million for thier property!
All in all.....do NOT book this hotel!! You would be better off to book at the Day´s Inn next door...at a cheaper price...it looked quite nice.
