This review is based on the roughly one hour I stayed at this hotel despite the fact that we had a reservation for 2 nights. What confuses me is that I know people who have stayed here in rooms with new furniture, plasma tv etc. That was NOT our experience.
The room we were given was nothing short of a disgrace. We found mouse feces on our bed. Half of the door panel was ripped off from the inside. The AC unit was too small for the hole it was in, leaving a huge gap for mosquitoes to get in. The bathroom had someone's beard trimmings in the sink and on the wall. There was no tv, telephone or anything even resembling creature comforts.
As soon as we arrived I got on the phone and found another hotel for the same price that had such "luxuries" as a phone, tv and clean bathroom. I didn't even bother to complain before we left as I knew the hotel was sold out and anyone who would be willing to put guests in a room like that is best avoided, in my opinion. I have stayed in better $30 motels. Do not be fooled by the pictures on here. You are not guaranteed to get a room like that.
