I reluctantly am writing this review. I very much like the owners and desk
clerk. But have to say it, and show it, as i see it.
Nancy and Mr. Harry. They are FRIENDLY, NICE and strive to keep customers happy!
The shuffleboard and putting green up front by office.
The private balconies.
The A/C worked great! It was a hot one the days I was there.
The shower head was super, lots of pressure and it didn't take me hours to rinse out shampoo
The smell. Its was god awful for me. It burns my throat, sinuses, and eyes I slept with the patio door wide open the the first night just trying to air it out. I thought it was an ozone machine, but they said the didn't have one.
The owner said it was probably the cleaning solutions they used. I think she was right.
The next day the owner did offer to take me around to different rooms to
see if any of them was better. I declined since i had already gone thru two and the lobby smells the same.
I ended up moving the 2 chairs that were plastic out on the balcony which helped.
The maids would try to get in the room first, knock later. It's startling
when you're asleep and you keep hearing this.
GET DIFFERENT CLEANER
The WIFI did not work in this room. I had to go out on the balcony and try to aim my computer at another hotel. I HATED this!
It is very busy on the blvd all night long. Good thing the a/c is loud, so it
drowns out all the trucks, scooters and motorcycles.
I would sit on the balcony nightly. (To use my computer)
Last night I was there I had a front row (balcony seat) to what appeared to be illicit behavior. I informed the owner and told her what I saw. She thanked me and said it would be taken care of. They have a policy only to rent to couples and families. Evidently these guys slipped thru the rules. So be observant of every thing around you. Glad my kids weren't with me to witness this.
I didn't find this hotel quite as clean as others did. Although it's VERY outdated, that was only part of problem. I took pictures to back up my claims so you could she what I saw, then come to your own conclusions.
I'm sure for many, these pics will mean nothing, but it was enough of an issue for me to post them.
The bathroom was dirty period. Pics will show that. Whoever caulked the bathroom should be fired.
Towels and bedspread were dirty. Wasn't sure what
those stains are, but I'm going to tell myself its rust.
The kitchen along with everything else is dated, but that refrigerator has got
to go. It is sooo rusty.
The bathroom door didn't close all the way, but not a problem for me, since I was traveling alone.
I like these people so much I didn't want to write any thing negative on my review, but i would like to be aware of things like this when making a decision.
It is a cute, quaint retro-ly cool place. It makes me want to go in and
completely re-do a room for them!
Would I ever come back? Maybe. If they take me up on my offer to re-do one of the rooms! ;) ........and use a different cleaning solution.
