We are at a loss to figure out why a rating agency would give this establishment a 4 star rating. It just does not come together. Workmanship and materials used in construction are very poor. It appears to have been done "on the cheap" and haphazardly. Indeed, parts of the hotel look and feel like a DYI project gone awry. Of particular concern are things like the apparent use of wall tiles on bathroom floors. This results in a very slippery surface when wet and in our opinion is dangerous. Our room was large but sparsely and cheaply furnished. There were no reading lights. The TV remote sensor was located behind the TV set and it was impossible to use unless we moved the TV (a large CRT unit). The bed was dreadfully soft. Facecloths were not supplied. The breakfast buffet had a minimal selection. On a positive note, the staff was helpful and friendly. No complaints about service.
