Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel itself is very tired and needs renovation. Feels like it's hanging on for dear life. While on the private access sundeck - a very crazy homeless man appeared to dry his socks and tell us about his time in a mental asylum among other highly distressing topics. Won't be returning to this hotel.
