I have stayed at hundreds of hotels, motels, inns, and hostels all over the world and this ‘inn’ rates as the lowest in all categories. First off I was embarrassed that this place existed in my country. There was no parking on sight and we had to drive a block away in a fairly ghetto neighborhood where we were asked twice for money and saw about 10 police on bikes.
I had paid for a queen size bed but we slept a double, which they still referred to as a queen. The bed itself left my boyfriend and I with extreme back pain and therefore lost half a night’s sleep. I have never seen my boyfriend in that much pain. The room left much to be desired, a window air conditioner that was very loud. The bathroom was a horrible mess, it was so small that when I, a 5’1’’ women, sat down my knees had to be moved to the side because there was a wall in the way. There was pubic hair all over and mold growing.
I hate being negative so I had tried to see some positive things about the inn, I had observed that each room number also had the number in Braille; I thought that was a nice touch that was until a few seconds later I fell up the stairs, they were uneven and unexpected. One more thing, the breakfast was one colour...white, unless you put jam on the toast to add colour.
This was an extremely disappointing hotel experience for my boyfriend and I. I have absolutely no idea how this hotel has 3 stars. I wish I would have know because I would have paid a few extra dollars for a good night’s sleep. This hotel was so bad that you couldn’t pay me to stay here again.
