My husband and I chose this hotel based on previous reviews as well as proximetry to the First Annual Nogales Classic Bicycle Ride. Apparently it used to be a Days Inn (at least the shower curtain said so). The Pros: Very friendly staff, (although we had to wait each time we went to the desk for something (coffee pot, towels, info on ice machine) for at least 5 minutes--staff came from outside the main building; very nice looking lobby, hot tub (only 2 jets worked), pool, fairly comfortable bed, clean fridge and microwave, continental breakfast (good coffee), no bad smells. Cons: no smoke detector (hole in wall), no fitness room, only one towel (small and rough), no tissues/box in tissue holder, worn, stained carpet, holes in bed comforter, two very flat pillows on the bed, door to bottom of sink (looking for another towel) fell off, faded peeling wall paper, back of hotel fenced off for second floor entry. Since the beds felt comfortable w/o signs of any bugs, we stayed. Had a good rest. It's too bad that the hotel was so run down. There were many unused rooms that the staff could have put us in and then perhaps I'd have a different review. Too bad the attention paid to the lobby wasn't extended to the rooms. Next year we plan on staying elsewhere, like the Americana--almost as close to City Hall and recently remodeled.
