When I booked a room for 7 days 4 weeks prior to our stay, I was promised a room on the 3rd floor,
When we arrived we were given a room on the ground floor, next to the lobby. They said this was the only room available and that they didn't promise anything...
My advice: insist on a written confirmation by email or Fax when booking.
The room we ended in was very small, it smelled after a cleaning detergent, the mattress was worn down, all sank in to the middle...
This room # 8 is the only room without a balcony or possibility to sit outside.
Avoid this room unless you just seek a room with a bed and a shower near the beach.
Believe it pr not: there are even worse rooms: rooms A to D are in the basement. You can sit outside there but with the nice view of a towing garage place... All the north side rooms (two digit even numbers) look on the garage while the south side rooms (two digit odd numbers) look on the parking lot and the Ashworth hotel.
The other rooms are oceanfront and more expensive.
You see, it's all about the right room...
The lobby is nice with games on tables for rainy days and they offer free coffee, tea or SwissMiss.
The coffee however was very thin, I was glad to have brought Nescafe to add. Many guest go and get their coffee at the Jumping Jack Java nearby.
The cleaning personnel from Russia Is either slow or unable to cope with all the rooms. We twice came back from the beach at 4 p.m. to find our room not made up. The other times I asked the front desk to take care that they do it. I also had to ask them to vacuume the floor.
I have traveled a lot but never experienced that our pajamas that we left on the bed had been thrown to the floor!!! This is disgusting!
Needless to say that there was no hairdryer...
There was soap and shampoo but very cheap so I bought softsoap in the supermarket to wash my hands (never happened to me before).
The WLAN is free, but works only part time, on the south side (parking lot) better than on the north.
Phone: the first phone didn't give a beep, the second seemed to work but my friends kept trying to call me and didn't get through. Neither the extension on the information sheet nor the one the owner gave me worked, they all ended on the front desk where the Bulgarian wasn't able to connect to my room....
Please be careful when you book (see above) and when you inspect the room. They give you 10 minutes, after that you get chaged the total price.
I wish you a pleasant stay!
There is no elevator and the staircases are very very steep.
A good choice might be a room on the...
