I went there for a short trip so thought of staying in this hotel since it is in the town area which is convenient for me to travel out to the highway. However, when I drive into the parking lot, the place is so dark and I can’t see any security person at the exit point. The exit pole is also broken and I can’t see any CCTV camera around the parking lot so if bad things happen such as someone steal your cars, it will be an easy job for the carjackers. The hotel room is quite below the par and doesn’t up to the 3-star standard hotels. The bed sheets, towels, window curtain and the floor carpet need to be totally change as it looks like the room service staff never did their job to change it everyday. The staffs are not so friendly though as when I check in that time, the staffs are chit chatting among each other over the counter as though I’m invisible there. The breakfast provided are just “okay” and not much food provided. The room rates are quite expensive considering the services that I get. This hotel definitely will need to be refurbished as the whole hotel is in the sorry state. Would I come back and stay at this hotel? The answer is “NO”.
