I had heard horrid things about this hotel and I think that made a huge difference. My expectations were low. So when the Hotel managers, Linda and Sunny, personally attended to me, I was more than impressed. Then when I got to the room, I was truly Wowed! The room was large and spacious. Perfect for my mother and I but more than enough space for a family of 4, 5 or 6. There's a fridge, microwave oven and even a washing machine. I didn't use any of those and I agree that the decor was stuck in time. But the amount of money I paid was just so low, that I really have no problem with the dated decor. I would definitely go back if I could get the very same room. I am that impressed. The breakfast was fine and there's plenty to eat. Have your eggs however style you want and they will make it on the spot for you. Every day is the same but it doesn't fazed me. I wasn't staying long any way. But that would be the only nitpick I have with the hotel: lack of variety. But other than that, everything was lovely.
