Sadly to say I have mixed feelings about this place. Let's start with check in. The guy at the front desk should not be working there - very rude with an unfriendly attitude. When I asked if I could change my poolside room (very noisy) to the back of the hotel he bruskly told me there were non available. I told him I counted at least 8 rooms that were empty back there and magically there was a room available. What a snot. On the other hand, I talked with the owner of the property for a while and she was a complete doll. What a nice woman. The hotel itself looks old and rundown, although I did see landscaping people working the grounds. The room was dirty with stained carpets and stained old furniture, but the bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. But hey, at $33 a night what do you want? (thats the special they are now running-3nights for $99 - a real bargain). Problem is that if you don't have a car you're stuck there. Even one of the security guards said that the neighborhood was very dangerous and you should not walk anywhere, even during the day. The pool was cool and the people were friendly. A smattering of hustler action and people playing 'balcony bingo' but I did meet a few hot guys...if you're looking for action this is the place to get it. This is also the place to get a cheap, stiff drink as well- there are 5 bars I think and a restaurant that was actually pretty good. So all in all, I had a good time. But I think that if they want the place to be great, they should put a little money into it - do some painting, get rid of some of that crappy furniture and clean the place up. A little money would go a really long way - oh and get rid of that snotty guy at the front desk.
