Property condition


  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

Property had all amenities. Loved they had parking and breakfast included in the rate. Rooms are clean, although a bit old, you can see plastered cracks on the wall. Also offered free early check in, which was nice. Did not like the fact that they do not inform people booking through a third party site that they take $200 bond. They also keep a copy of your ID/passport, which is not okay in 2020. Customer details could be stolen. All in all an average stay. What you'd expect for $100/night.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Hotel was nothing like the pictures. Our room was dirty. The shower floor was dirty, the white shower curtain had rust stains at the top and had brown soap scum at the bottom. The were tiles missing from the bathroom floor. In the main room there was a crack along the wall from damp. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. The noise from outside from hotel patrons continues to early hours of the morning. Then i couldn't get any refund because i had booked through Expedia as a 4 night booking . we only stayed the one night!! They had a dining room and offered complimentary continental breakfast which i thought would be fresh think again. their continental breakfast was 3 variety packs of cereal, a fruit juice popper, a small kids yogurt and a small tum of fruit all in the room!
