“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

There were 3 garbage cans outside our room that were overflowing and had obviously been there for days, because they smelled like death. When I mentioned it to someone who worked there, they emptied half the garbage and the rest stayed there for 4 days. It was absolutely disgusting. The whole place is under construction. While I appreciate the fact that they are trying to spruce up the place, there was construction debris everywhere, in the halls, in the parking lot , etc. The bathroom in our room was dripping water from the ceiling. Could not get a wifi signal in our room. Over all, staying here was a very unpleasant experience.

New owners are in the middle of rehab. This hotel will likely be REALLY nice once the construction is completed. If you can look past some of the debris right now, it's not a bad stay for a night. Many rooms have full kitchenettes (however oddly, they were missing an in room coffee machine). The AC unit was a bit noisy but tolerable.

Pool area is like an oasis - lots of Palm trees surrounding. There's plenty of dining options nearby - some in walking distance. Proximity to the airport wasn't a problem either.

This is an average hotel - not like a Marriott or Choice. But it's not bad for a one night stay. Once renovations are complete, this would be a pretty good destination hotel. At this time though, don't expect a lot and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms around the back are quieter.

from the street the hotel looks ago but you know you are in trouble when you enter lobby with AC off and a Parrot behind the counter. Next warning was an extra $100 security charge on room. We walked to room past lots of construction and finally arrived at room. Door was busted, room smelled like smoke in a nonsmoking room and no one in my family wanted to stay. I want not have stayed for $1 per night.

I have been here since November. It was bad to start new owner took over 100 time better. New owner cleand up bugs and is remodeling all the rooms with better furniture. The new owner is nicer then the old one. Got out the rude people that worked here and now has nicer people working here. The office is always open. Glad I stayed very happy with new owner.

The hotel has new owners that are remodeling the entire place, so I was told that only like a third of the place was open to rent. New owners were fabulous and very willing to make our stay fantastic. Even the old rooms that are open and haven't been reinnovated as of yet we're very clean and worth staying in. The new rooms look fantastic. I cannot wait until we come back down next year to see all of the progress!

New owner is going over and above to improve this place. Many rooms have been ripped out and re-done. Pool is well maintained, and new pool furniture was delivered and set up this morning. Any issues have been dealt with quickly. New management, new staff. Right now, a great value for the price.

Room Tip: Book early
