4/10 Fair

The front desk associate was very nice as was the housekeeper. They were the only two employees we saw. The pool was closed permanently because the owners don't want to pay for upkeep. No breakfast or anything. The room had dirty washcloths hanging on the shower rod.

6/10 Good

Front desk staff was friendly. The property is run down, banged up doors, unrepaired holes in walls from old fixtures. On the positive side, everything worked. Decent sized mini fridge, tv, hair drier, iron and board. Liads if hot water. Fine if you are passing through and need an inexpensive place to sleep.
