I stayed here recently, and yes the rooms are a little dated, but for the price, location and refreshing pool they have, its pretty good value.
Personally I prefer the upper rooms since its quieter from both hallway noise (very few people stay up here) and street noise, although there is no elevator so its good exercise going up to your room.
I found the staff here pleasant and not pushy at all regarding their "tours", which is one reason I moved here from another guest house that would "push" their tours to you every time you visited the front desk.
Free wifi in the lobby is handy and the restaurant has pretty good food at fair prices. There may be a few nicer places to stay but there are many worse places than this for the price.
I plan to return here when I come back to CMai again.
