We stayed in one bedroom unit number 1 which faces the very busy road. If you are not used to road noise request another room away from the road as the road traffic never lets up!
Unit very basic but seemed clean, however a large cockroach visited us during the night! However we have them at home so it didnt faze us.
Unit gets very hot – a fan would have been good.
Now I bring you to what let the unit down, the bed covers. The sheets were limp and very thin, the blanket was old and yuckie looking, then there was the bedspread. Who uses bedspreads these days? I wonder how many people had used that bedspread since its last wash?! Immediately the blanket and bedspread were taken off the bed as I wasn’t sleeping under them. Come on management bring the beds up to date with fresh crisp linens and new blankets.
Would I come back – no, a good nights sleep is very important to us.
Paid $145 per night – unit not worth this sort of money.
