6/10 Good

Not a 200 dollar a night place
Was a 50s vintage bldg remodeled. $120 a night is all that it is worth. Gave us 2 drink tickets to soften the $200 blow. Would not go back.

Convenient to everything
Overall very nice property. The location is convenient to everything we wanted. We knew going a head the there is still some remodeling going on, but barely noticed. The Rooms were very nice, The bed was incredibly comfortable, water in the showers was hot. AC in the room was cold. No real complaints other than the light in our bathroom did not work. But the room was bright enough that it really didn’t matter. Also the soap that was given was brittle, but not a big deal. Other than that no real complaints. Property felt safe and was well kept. Great place to stay we will definitely come back.

Great hotel near the airport
Great hotel near the airport, with very friendly staff including the bar staff onsite at the Bahi Hut. Mini fridge and microwave in the room, Walmart a couple blocks away to pick up light drinks/snacks. Big TV, hot water, good water pressure, powerful AC. Great pool, competitive rates, chill overall vibe and would recommend and stay here again.
