Im writing this from the hotel lobby.
I'm told there is free wifi throughout the hotel, but couldn't get a signal in my room on the first floor. The wifi is spotty in the lobby but it's good enought for emails and FB updates.
Now...the room. I hoped it would be in better condition since it is a Best Western property. The rooms starting with 500s are in the new/renovated wing. My room, sadly, is not. It is worn, tired, and the carpet looks dirty. It is in desperate need of a good deep cleaning and a paint job. However the bedding is clean as is the bathroom. The tv doesn't work and the toilet takes ten minutes to stop running after flushing.
Dinner in the restaurant downstairs is alright. Service is good and the staff are friendly but the food is too salty. The property is located within walking distance to town which has lots of lively pubs and five miles from the ocean. Breakfast is ten euros per person and is just the basics. You have to leave your key (and it's ginormous keychain) with the front desk if you leave the hotel.
I would not choose to stay here again.
