I stayed here last night, and was shocked by what I was greeted with as I walked into my room. Water stains and sagging on the ceiling from water damage, huge chunks of peeling wall paper, and dirt and crumbs under the bedside table, on top of the baseboards in the bathroom and well... it needs a lot of work. As others have said the beds are not in great shape, and the towels are less than soft.
I gave it a second star because of the help I got from the Front Desk staff, or at least the compensation for a problem we had AND, the outdoor pool area looked extremely nice. The breakfast was hot and the service was good. All in all, it was rather quiet, but I wasn't about to stay there a minute longer than I needed before I was on my way.
