          The check in was easy and the staff is very helpful. The room we stayed in was spacious and comfortable. I was travelling with my sister and as another traveler said, there are men with their doors open smoking and yelling comments at us which...More

          The spa didn't work and that wasn't disclosed prior to booking. Rooms were kind of smelly and the front desk help was rude. Not a good room especially for the money.
