Staff was very nice, but hands down the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Zero amenities. Nothing that you would expect as standard - not even a coffee maker in the room. No guest computer/internet station, no laundry facilities, no fridge, no gym, not even an iron. Pillows were also awkwardly small - very strange and not very comfortable as they were so small you had to perch your head just in the center. What was not lacking was ants. Ants every single day I stayed there. Also - as it is cheap it was frequented by young partiers who brought with them cases of beer. The quests were often loud and the walls and ceilings very thin, so it was very noisy. Luckily the room fan was so loud that it drowned out some of the noise. Don't get a room by the pool unless you want drunk party people directly outside your room - they were so loud that it sounded like they were inside the room. Also - the room phone doesn't even have a button for the front desk, not even a note pad or anything with the hotel phone number listed. Also - not the usual book that lists the hotels amenities... since there were none, but it would have at least been a place to find the front desk number. The housekeeping staff occasionally not only removed the soap that I had opened and did not replace it - so there was no soap unless you walked to the front office. Housekeeping also often left the curtains to my room wide open where there was a full length glass door out to where the pool partiers hung out, so anyone could fully look into the room. I would never stay there again. Also - I was told I had a $7.00 incidentals charge but they could not explain what it was for... but nice staff. But I don't choose where I stay based on the staff.
