    I stayed in eXtra day

    Swimming was fun

  • 2.4

    Nothing at all,the building was extremely hot and miserable. The rooms smelt as if someone had urinated on the carpets which were very dirty.

    Everything! ! When you remodel you should warn customers and you should upgrade your cooling system, and when you fix walls make sure they are all finished before trying to rent out the rooms!

  • 2.8

    nothing we were tired and needed to sleep

    it is being remodeled and under construction, i really want my money back! they also made a copy of my drivers license with out my permission. and would not give it back. also some one parked near my car and dinged it.

  • 10.0

    The hotel was undergoing refurbishment but was still very comfortable and excellent value for money. The room was very spacious with everything you could need and the pool was lovely

    The breakfast coffee could have been better and fruit would have been nice but, quite frankly, for the price, I was more than satisfied

  • 3.8

    Good value for money.

    I am sorry for this low rate, but this hotel at this moment is like out of order. Other guests were present together with workers for rebuilding rooms. Carpets not clean, breakfast very minimal. Not very easy to access.

  • 2.4

    Nothing!!!!! Don't go to this place!!!! This is a place for hookers and drug addicts.

    Everything.... The place was old and run down nothing like the picture . my boyfriend and son (13 y/o) was hit on by a hooker before they even left the truck. The place is dirty and hot !!!! we could hear a couple having sex and talking all night. Dont believe the good rating on this hotel they have to be fake. I'm disappointed in bookings.com on this trip.

  • 5.4

  • 6.2

    I loved the bed it was very comfortable. The shower worked well also.
