What's wrong with this place? The better question is what's NOT wrong with this place.
Upon Checkin, we had reserved the corner room for a higher rate but they tried to give us a standard room for the same price.
The room was filthy. The sheets weren't changed, the bed was horribly uncomfortable and the sheets were so thin you could see the mattress. There was no mattress pad.
The bathroom was so small you could literally fit one person in it. It was a converted closet! The sink couldn't fit in the bathroom. The shower had used soap where it wasn't cleaned. The shower head leaked so that the spray shot over the shower curtin soaking the "bathroom".
It was so loud as well. I don't think I slept more than an hour. There is a really popular restaraunt bar that is NOT part of the hotel, called Ceviche's that is located where the hotel is. They had people partying til 4:30 AM. And then the drunks started rolling in around 4-5 AM.
Walls are paper thin and you can hear everything.
Needless to say, if you stay here be prepared for the worst night of your life!
