I went off the reviews of this place and was expecting something really nice, but I was disappointed. The place is set up very strange. You walk in and there is a desk for reception, and on either side of the desk is open with doors on the wall. These doors lead directly into your room. We had a choice of rooms, but niether was extremely nice, and niether had a view of anything other than the hotel/house side next door. I expected a little more being that we were charged $80 for the night. We had a breakfast in the morning was ok. The beds were not comfortable, they were very hard and my husband actually slept in this little bed that reminded me of a children's bed about 3 inches off the ground. When I woke up in the morning, something had apparently been in the bed with me. I had bug bites everywhere on my legs. It must have been in the bed with me, freaked me out.
The community tv was directly outside the door of our room and it wasn't on, but someone had a tv on very loud and I could here it clearly in our room and it was midnight. You could here everything going on outside the door to our room because it was a community area and when people were sitting outside the room watching tv, I might not have even shut the door because it did nothing to dampen the sound.
The lady that had the place was very nice and accomidating and had good suggestions. I just expected a little more based off the reviews. It really was like staying at my relatives house almost. The bug bites just totally freaked me out. Maybe you could consider it more a hostel than a hotel. I would have expected it to be cheaper overall than what we payed.
