I wouldn't make my worst energy stay there! Remind me of a horror movie hotel! Turned up had no sign up so a pain to find. Checked in and the person tried to charge me way over the price I booked online. Walking to the room a crowd if men stood drinking on the walk way. Got into our room. Booked non smoking. The minute I opened the door the room stank of smoke! I turned the air-con on which was like a cloud of smoke! Then went to turn the lights on. None worked. Went and complained. The lady handed us air spray and a light bulb. Ridiculous. The door barely locked properly so slept in the back room for own saftey as searched other available hotels. Never again! Stay away it's horrific!

Stayed July 2014, traveled with friends

We only asked for quite, which we did get but thought we booked a non-smoking room. We about choked when we opened the door. We were moved to another room that was better but it also was not a non smoking room even though the sign on the door indicated such. We understand that some occupants just do not observe the rule but housekeeping could have done a better job. Maybe it is time to replace the carpet, drapes and linens which are way too worn and probably would not withstand the required cleaning to eliminate the smoke odor and particles.

Room Tip: View room before accepting. I'm sorry we didn't.

For 80bucks its not terrible. Pillows flat but room was clean. Shower was good but not provide conditioner. Latoya was awesome! Someone did try to enter room but left so no problems, just a mix up. All in all you get what you pay for people.

Room Tip: Non smoking is usually a little better.

One of the nice things about getting away to an area with a nice climate is to be able to enjoy the swimming pool at your pleasure -- NOT -- the pool was empty.
