“Don't stay here!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Booked this stay because we wanted to be close to the naval base. Very scary place! Woke up at 1:40 am to the sound of someone stomping around above - pretty sure it was the hooker that we saw strutting through the parking lot earlier! Decided to step outside to smoke a cigarette and two bums were coming into the courtyard, saw me and turned around and left. Then to top it off, used the toilet, flushed, went back to bed and listened to the toilet run until I finally got up and had to take the tank cover off to make toilet stop running. Although the rooms were clean they are also very dated and the whole place just has a very scary & dingy atmosphere. Tomorrow it will be just my daughter and I so we will be moving on to somewhere safer!

I can't really complain. The rooms are well kept; I think its a good deal for the prices they offer.
