Within a few blocks from all the gay bars, in fact, only 1.5 blocks from one of the main dance clubs Mañana and a local gay bar is across the street
Close proximity to a ton of great restaurants
Great water pressure for the showers and the sink
Bathroom is in pretty decent shape
The triple occupancy rooms seem to have tons of space and their balconies overlook one of the local gay bars (would reccomend these rooms over the double occupancy rooms)
Adequate daily maid service
Relatively close to the beach (within a few blocks)...however, about 12 blocks from the gay section of the beach
The rooms need a lot of "love"...tons of rust on fixtures, gaps in exterior doors, dusty fixtures
Lacks sound proofing, so you'll hear people chatter and the rumble of large-size vehicles...not recommended for light sleepers
No in-room phone for contacting the front desk
Pool is on the small side and only appropriate for soaking with very few people
TV had volume buttons physically removed and could only be turned on/off by plugging/unplugging
Free wifi, but very slow and spotty
BOTTOMLINE: great for its location, but this hotel wouldn't fit my definition of a 3-star hotel...if location, tight budget, and simply a place to lay your head at night are your only requirements, this place could work for you...but, if you're looking for amenities & rooms equivalent to that of a Holiday Inn or a Best Western, this isn't it.
