Where do I start - this hotel is totally misleading. We booked based on their website - Warning: do not expect to get what they advertise! The rooms are NOTHING like advertised on the website. We expected modern posh looking rooms but we got 80s cheap motel decor and colors. The room was big, but it was so old fashioned and cheap looking. And the bedding smelled like old women's perfume. The bathroom was probably the nicest part - too bad it didn't reflect throughout the rest of the room.
The one thing we hoped to take advantage of was the "Tropical Pool". It looks like it could be nice - if they cleaned it. It was so dirty, and there were a ton of spiders and bugs in the pool. It looked like they hadn't cleaned it in years. We were also told it was a heated pool, but as we expected it was freezing. A few areas felt warm. There was a tiny little hot tub next to the pool that wasn't turned on and again it was dirty and full of insects. We couldn't beleive it. It was just one disappointment after another.
The sign outside on their building says "Podallan Inn & Spa". There is no spa. Why they have this on the sign is beyond me, but they are totally misleading in every other aspect so it didn't surprise us in the least. There is another gross hot tub on the second floor of the second building. It wasn't turned on and it wasn't clean - maybe this is what they consider the spa.
I am still disgusted that we payed almost $200 after taxes for this room. Their prices are outrageous for this place- they charge way to much. Never again!
