Several rooms have nice views. Most do not. The small rooms were dark and dirty when we got there and stayed dirty during our stay. It is an old small dirty 1 star hotel with some potential to maybe be more.
There were days without maid service because the maids had been fired for stealing. The rooms were not cleaned every day... The tub/shower in our bathroom had no curtain to keep the water in nor a drain on the floor.... so if anyone took a shower, you walked in stagnant deeply pooled water on the floor to use the bathroom or used your bath towels to dry and wring it. There were boards missing from the floor over filthy carpet. The furniture was falling apart. The bed collapsed when I raised the mattress to look under it!! It was gross.
No phone. No elevator and very steep narrow flights of stairs... no bellboys so you carry your own luggage yourself.
Breakfast was supposed to be included and was prepaid for, but there were times the food was not fresh, and non-exsistent!... It was gone when we got to breakfast althogh it was well within the posted breakfast hours!
The manager insisted on prepayment and cash only- no credit cards, and kept wanting to raise the prices. He still charged us full amount and wouldn't refund money even when breakfast or maid service was not available.. and still wanted to charge us even more!!!!
Beware of what you are getting into with this place.
