I initially gave three stars as it was perfectly clean, staff helpful except for the night desk person greeting me at one am. Wonderful fresh fruit and good coffee at comp. breakfast. My room however was unbearably hot and stuffy. Even using the portable a/c didn't help too much as the room heated up fast when the A/c timer clicked off. Tried keeping windows open but the late night noise from nearby bars didn't do much for a good night's sleep. And the street sweeper machine rolled around at dawn, then the trucks started their routes belching diesel fumes into the room. The wifi was hit and miss. The TV set up was unnecessarily complicated what with the set up connections to the VCR and when I finally got it on I couldn't change the channel. I gave up . Cancelled my remaining three nights and moved to another hotel. The lobby area is especially small and dismal. Everything is brown. And arriving at one am with the subdued lighting, it made a dismal first impression. Very disappointing. There are several hotels around the same area and same price range that are so much nicer. Even if you won't get a free breakfast. On the plus side the bathroom was lovely with good hot water and water pressure and very comfy bed. I really don't want to see a rebuttal from the management as they were aware of my issues with the room but staff just kept saying ..so sorry. They don't have a restaurant - just the morning cafe so only breakfast room service.
