Check-in: The guy in the front was very friendly and courteous; he was helpful for just about everything. Deserves to win "Most Respectful/Respectable 2014" award, hands down.
Room: A lot of points deserve to be docked in this department. Our room had a giant cover on the window, which can be manually moved to the side, but still gave the sense of shadiness and uncleanliness. Speaking of uncleanliness, one of the bins had a used diaper, but thankfully management took care of it well.
Amenities: There's a swimming pool (trust me, you won't miss it when you walk in to check-in) and a few more places, but all we really used that night was wifi and the TV, both functional.
Breakfast: If I list all the food there, it would probably crash the site. All I will say is that the omelettes are to die for, along with most of the food offered there.
Notes: A lot of points were to be docked room-wise, but the breakfast recovered most of the points. Good food at the start of a morning can really turn a frown upside down! In the end, this isn't exactly hotel quality, but definitely worth to check out.
