Why I stayed there was because of the price and the previous review. I am SHOCKED that it was ranked this high! On checking in, you had to press a buzzer to be let into the caged, check-in area and noticed a sign that said "no refunds". It was only $55.00 a night so I didn't care and pre-paid cash.
I was then given a key to the room and went up the stairs (after being buzzed in unlocking the gate to the upper floor levels). My room was by far the dirtiest, grimiest hell hole I've ever had the displeasure of residing. I pulled back the sheets and found the sheets full of nappy pubes and dirt. No phone, one hand towel, and no remote for the filthy 19" television.
I left the room and went into town for the day. When I got back, I buzzed to get in again, and waited a couple minutes..no response. However, I was greeted by 2 hookers outside who tried to convince me to be their girlfriend for the night - very uncomfortable. Eventually, a guy let me in and one hooker followed after me in saying she wanted to stay with me. After the hotel employee gave her a hug, I was buzzed upstairs.
When I got in the room, I went to pick up my back pack off the bed and found cockroaches on top. I killed no less than 8 cockroaches before pasing out and leaving the light on. Every night, coming back to the room was more cockroach extermination and sleeping with the light on. I kept thinking about the "no refunds" sign down stairs and thought what an idiot I was. I could go on about the cigarette burns on the end table and plugged up sink and more, but I think you have the idea.
I stayed for my 3 night duration just to remind myself that a cheap room is sometimes not a baragin at all. It ruined my trip. Stay at your own peril.
