As soon as you walk in you see the place is run-down, cheap crocked signs and very dated decor. Rooms match the rest of the place, i.e. drab. Some rooms have quite a hike to get to them, also you have the joy of seeing some sweaty gust in the glass wall gym every time you walk to it. I think the solution here is a bulldozer. On top of this the check in desk staff were a mix of stupid and rude.
