we stayed here twice between april and may, rather happy with the first visit, but soured by the second. had a seaview deluxe room which was worth it for the view and we considered the room to be a good value first time around (very convenient location, decent size room, comfy bed, bathroom with bathtub, wifi worked without complaint). one drawback is that the windows should open but are permanently screwed shut. contrary to a previous review I didn't notice any smell of cigarette in the non smoking rooms we stayed (maybe a little bit in the hall, but not the rooms). free buffet breakfast was decent.
what soured the stay the second time around a week later was that as of may 2013 the management had increased room rates slightly (fair enough) and decided that 'free breakfast' only means that they need to give one buffet coupon per room, even if two people are staying in the room, so the second person has to pay. what annoying penny pinching!
