We showed up to reception on first day but there was no one there, so we waited until 3pm which is when the sign on the window said the office would re-open. No one showed and we had no phone so we had to borrow another tourists phone. After calling the hotel and a three hour wait, someone showed up and was VERY rude. There was no apology about the misleading sign and it was obvious that they were annoyed at us. Secondly, don't expect any sleep unless you're Snorlax because there's a train track about five meters behind the hotel which literally shakes the room. The veranda offered a better view of the car park then the sea.
This isn't the hotel's fault, but if you do make the mistake of staying here a heads up is that the bus running behind the hotel isn't very reliable. Finally, the street outside the hotel is full of seedy men sitting on the side of the road. I went with my girlfriend, in winter, and we ended up avoiding the street all together as it was impossible to walk down it without an old man calling out to us. Definitely the most seedy men I've ever seen.
The rooms were alright though, and one of the office ladies (Denise) was amazing and so so helpful. But all in all I would recommend staying in the actual town rather than here as it makes doing anything impossible.
