As stated by a previous reviewer, the hotel is undergoing renovation. I wish we could have gotten a room at the hotel in the pictures shown but alas the current place does not look like the photos.
And yes, their Wi-fi does not work for hotel customers. And yes they say, after you have paid, that there is no continental breakfast during renovation, sorry (chump)!
In your room is a small sign encouraging you to note that they charge $15 for missing pillows, $9 for missing bath towels, $2 for wash cloths and a $12 pittance for taking one of those towel-like floor mats that let you skid like a skateboard.
So what's so good about this place? Well we got a coupon on hotelcoupons.com for a walk-in rate of $35 for up to 4 people. After driving for hours we got in at 11:30 and were asleep in clean sheets by midnite. The room was kind of dumpy but it had two full beds and towels for three. They have one of those make your own cup of coffee machines and a hair dryer too. No fridge or microwave but some rooms have them.
After showers all around, we collected all the little freebie things (they make excellent little presents when we travel through Panama and South America - women are the same the world around) and hit the road for another ten hours of driving.
So for us it was great! We slept well (never heard the trains) and the bathroom was nice with hot water and one of those heat lamps in the ceiling that actually worked! And yes, they even had a postage stamp sized swimming pool. It is as good as the wi-fi.
If you like to lounge in your room and be pampered this is not the place for you. Here, for about $42 we got all we needed.
