We arrived at the hotel after 3 pm, normal check in time, and were told that the computers were down and so they couldn't check us in. We explained that we were rushing to a 4 pm wedding.... could we show them our printed receipt from priceline.com? They explained that wouldn't work because they wouldn't know which room to assign us and were afraid they would then assign it to someone else. Really? We waited in the lobby for at least 30 minutes until the computers were working. The room they gave us was on the first floor facing a large indoor courtyard and the pool. That clearly was not a very desireable room and what made the room even less desireable was the fact that the wall facing the courtyard was glass and no matter how well we tried to close the curtains, you could still see into the room from a certain angle. And the room was in a high traffic area, so that was quite disturbing. The room itself was tiny and the bathroom was old and tired. The refrigerator smelled so we couldn't put anything in it. I would have thought for the inconvenience they would have given us a nicer room; but we were rushing so much to get to the wedding that we didn't have the time to complain. We were late to the wedding and arrived just as the bride and groom were walking down the aisle. I do not recommend this hotel at all.
