Never again

The blanked torned in places, no fundamental toiletters (like soap or shampoo), one little towel hard to find. Staff advised to leave for the flight way too long in advance. No coffee by the coffeemaker. Will not come again despite the free airport shuttle.

don't stay here!

This was once an apartment complex. It is very large and old. Nothing is even close to updating. We arrived and the complex is dark. The room smelled old and musty. It was clean but had stained carpet and walls. The toilet seat cover was not attached. The temperature control fell off while i was taking a shower. The power went out in the morning. Breakfast tasted good but as we looked outside the health department had shut down the pool. Overall not worth the cheap rate.

weekend getaway

The carpet looked dirty and worn a couple wholes in carpet in the closet. The couch was showing some signs of fraying on the cushions edge. The beds were comfortable. There was no shampoo or conditioner for hair.

This is not a 3 star hotel. Perhaps 1 Star

They've rated it with 3 stars but is barely one. It's called a suite but it was last updated in the late 70's. The carpet is stained, linens are worn, blankets have holes and the TV is dated with a worn out remote that is wrapped with black tape to keep the batteries in. However, this is not the worst. I found small bugs on the linens, a large dead cockroach in the bath tub and a mold throughout. This is one of those hotels that was considered 3 stars 30 years ago but the current owners have not maintained it.
