Knowing we were staying in a discount hotel, we didn't have expectations of grandeur, but there were a few things here that could have been improved.
The handset for the phone in our room didn't work. I was able to use the speakerphone to alert the front desk to the problem, but it was never addressed.
The "heated" pool, as others have noted, was too cold to swim in.
The leg to one of our beds was broken, causing the bed to teeter if someone sat on a corner. The sheets didn't fit properly so that my husband woke up both mornings with the fitted sheet pulled from the corner and wrapped around his legs. But the room itself was spacious, clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was adequate, I suppose, but light on selection - only apple juice (from a pitcher since the dispenser was apparently broken), only apples (no oranges or bananas, for example), two choices in cereal, etc.
As others have noted, there's a problem with water temperature consistency. The shower constantly traversed the spectrum from chilly to scalding.
All in all, it's acceptable for an inexpensive stay but not a place I'd wholeheartedly recommend.
