I had my doubts when I arrived as the place looked run down and neglected. If this is how the business is presented then I had a bad feeling but I had no choice as the other 3 places i tried had no vacancy or wanted stratosphere prices for 1 night.
The reception is awful and confirmed my suspicions. It is dirty, untidy and shabby.
I drove around the back to my room through a badly maintained parking lot and grounds. the pool was closed and not maintained.
Wow....what a sight. Many of the rooms were boarded up with rough sheets of ply/timber. This looked liked a derelict slum and is such an appalling impression for guests. can the owner not see what I see? What the heck is wrong with managers who walk past these issues??
My room was barely adequate but old and tired. No breakfast at all in the morning.
Some unsavoury guys hanging out in a couple of pick ups did not help the atmosphere much.
No...I will never ever go back and would never recommend it. What a pity as it has such huge potential in such a good area.
