Stayed here with my wife at the end of August. First off--the location is both good and bad, depending upon your needs. It is just off the A3 and next to a few modern commercial buildings so it lacks charm. However, its highway proximity enables you to quickly reach the Amalfi coast, Pompei and Naples without the hassle of driving through a town. Parking was free and plentiful and you can walk to a large supermarket down the road. A cafe, bank and pizzeria are right across the street.
The lobby is clean and modern and the staff very pleasant, even though English is not their forte. The restaurant offers a decent breakfast breakfast and is a nice, airy room with views of the mountains.
The rooms are not very big at all and the bathroom is basic with horribly weak shower pressure. In addition, the Air conditioning unit seems to have two degrees: freezing or off.
Still, the hotel was a good value and is a convenient base to explore the area. Incidentally, the town of Cava de'Tirreni has a very nice and active old center that is a 3-minute drive from the hotel. You will find nice shopping and eating options there without the super tourism of Positano and other crowded Amalfi coast towns.
If the hotel improves its shower pressure and air conditioning systems, it would merit an even higher score but for the reasonable rate of 80 Euros, I cannot complain.
