Location, very friendly staff and good parking.
Rooms are very dark hard to get any light. The property itself is tired and has seen its better days.
Beautiful lobby, fantastic pool
Front desk staff were great.
Hard beds, extremely hard pillows, thin blankets (and only one per bed); had to keep the room very warm to sleep comfortably. Paper thin walls. Room was very basic and didn't seem very clean or fresh. Breakfast not included. Do not recommend.
Family Suite, big room, street acces
Did't have elevator
The decorations - especially in the lobby - were very unique and the amenities of the bar and games were a great addition.
When we walked into the room the TV was on...it was creepy. There was no shower curtain, had to call to get one but wish I'd noticed there was NO SOAP either! I didn't call and ask for any because it felt trivial. Also, fair warning: there's no conditioner either. At least there was a hairdryer and plenty of towels.
