    Lukewarm shower.

    The hotel was clean, however there was no hot water probably because the number of people staying. All we ever got in the two days we were there was a lukewarm shower. That alone will cause us never to stay at this particular site again.

    Highly recommend this hotel.

    The staff is wonderful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The parking is close, free, and well-lit at night. The housekeeping staff are wonderful. The hotel provides free breakfast and the food was great. The hotel is very clean and has washer's and dryers. The beach is close, as is the train station, shopping centers and restaurants. The general manager, Hector, does a great job managing the hotel. I enjoyed my stay so much that I extended it. The pool and hot tub are clean, and the pool area has comfortable chairs, and towels. I highly recommend this hotel. The prices too are very reasonable for the area.

    Fair

    The room was smelly and beds were not comfortable. Breakfast was good. Front office greeted us well and had a pleasant face when guests approached. The carpet was pretty bad.

    Super comfortable

    Everything was great! The girl who was there when we checked in was super friendly, as well as the people who were there when we checked out in the morning. Everything was clean & the breakfast was pretty good. If i could rate the comfort 10 stars, I would!! The bed was super comfortable. I know where to stay when we come back to the area.

    You get what you pay for

    We stayed in two rooms--a king room and a two-room suite. We had to change rooms with the king room due to cockroaches. The new room and the suite were fine. The kitchenette area was nice, with a large fridge, microwave, stovetop, and a dishwasher. The inclusion of a dishwasher seemed odd because there were no dishes or even silverware. Check-in and check-out were both very fast and smooth. The staff was friendly and responsive. For having an 8-person suite, there were way to few towels. Upon request, more towels were brought to us, but when our room got tidied, they only replaced the towels with the original few. We aren't very big people, but the towels were surprisingly small. The body towels were about the size of two hand towels. The pool situation was disappointing--there was some maintenance that prevented us from using it most of the time. When it was available, it was very cold. It's nice to have a complimentary breakfast included, but in the past we have had more variety. All the breakfast options were the same each day, except for minor variety in the type of yogurt. The hotel wasn't 5-star, but it was worth the affordable cost, and we would stay here again.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The property was clean, liked the breakfast. They gave us a room that they had not cleaned. My wife asked one of the workers if they had cleaned the room before they rented it to us and was told that the sheets had not been changed. My wife inquired because of the itch she experienced after the first night.
