This property was obviously renovated on a shoestring budget---and never quite completed. The grounds surrounding the hotel looks like a landfill---dead trees, bushes, crumbling remains of old buildings that have not been removed since this property was so called "renovated". The work that was done on the hotel, is now so old that it too is in need of maintence or replacement. Everything is falling apart.
The hotel is hanging on this myth that this is like stepping back in time, and transporting you to 40's Hollywood. This place may have some history attached to it, but it is far from glamorous. The staff/owner need to realize that this place is a "sows ear", not a "silk purse" and get over the attitude. Acting like snobs, does not give this dump any class.
They do have a nice big pool, but that too is showing it's age. We did not have any hot water, but no one to complain to. The bathroom ceiling fan squealed so loud that you couldn't turn it on, which meant the light as well---and the list goes on and on.
We would not recommend this hotel.
