The gentleman working in the office was friendly and helpful, but the property itself is in desperate need of some TLC and updating. We stayed near the west side of the first floor, and the now closed neighbouring restaurants' patio framing was really rough and old looking. The concrete flooring beside the room was busted up - the overhang for the 2nd floor walkway is rotting underneath and needs repair and paint. The air conditioner doesn't fix properly and we stuffed napkins in the exposed area to keep the bugs out. Also, someone had not vaccuumed properly and there were several glass shards beside and under the bed which simply means someone did not do their job right and take the time to vaccuum properly. It smelled as if there was beer spilled recently beside the bed but once the air got circulating the smell left pretty quickly.
All in all, this property has great potential and from we experienced, a solid front desk staff - it just needs some upgrading and proper housekeeping and maintenance care.
