My husband and I stayed here while he was working in town. The staff was friendly enough, but communication was difficult since most did not understand English. The room was fairly clean when we arrived, however, housekeeping did not clean very well in the days after our arrival. The telephone in our room did not work, neither did the hair dryer, and there was not a microwave as promised. The beds were also quite uncomfortable. We brought our dog and the fee was only $7 a night which is very reasonable, but something in the carpet caused him to break out with a horrible rash. All this considered the stay wouldn't have been too bad, but there was a strange man from the local area lingering around the pool and making advances at women who were alone. He kept returning even after several complaints were made to the staff, who claimed that there was nothing they could do about it! Since I spent the majority of the day alone I found the situation extremely uncomfortable, perhaps even down right horrifying. We ended cutting our stay here short a day since we found the situation and the lack of concern shown by the management unnerving. My suggestion is to avoid this hotel if you are a woman, or traveling alone.
