Fate caused me to stay one night in a hotel I SWORE I would never step foot into again. However a cancelled booking, a long flight, and my phone failing to pull up the web (to search for another hotel) led me to tell the taxi driver 'Sparks'... (albeit with a LONG sigh)...
Have to admit the place was significantly improved this time. Not sure if it was luck of the draw, a better room, or a real overhaul... Wifi worked flawlessly in my room, I was averaging 1.75mb down, enough to watch Netflix and Skype if nothing else. The staff were VERY friendly and service was excellent for this price range. So seems as of Sept-2011 you can disregard my wifi warning from 2010...
