We stayed 2 nights, one going in and one on leaving CR. A different room each time. One night was charged $116 and one was $99. The hotel is really only worth about $65 per night.
Wish we would have stayed at the Marriott Courtyard for equal money.
The place is old and needs updating. The pool is run down with cracks and needs to be redone, it's not very inviting. The windows are old and the noise from people in the courtyard comes right through.
The internet signal only worked if I went outside and walked to the office. My daughter had to sit outside until 10 p.m. so she could use the internet to chat with her friends.
The rooms are tiny with hardly enough space to open our suitcase. We were 3 in a "suite" and basically if one person was moving around the 3 others had to stay seated, otherwise you'd bump into each other.
There's no in-room coffee pot and morning coffee and hot water buffet started at 7:00, so if you want to get an early start you can forget about coffee or tea. I'm a 6:00 a.m. kind of guy. So not having morning internet or coffee was frustrating.
There's a restaurant of sorts, but I never was able to locate a menu, so I don't know what they serve?
They do keep the place clean, but it doesn't make up for being so dated.
We'll find an alternative next year.
