Avoid this hotel at all costs. There is a reason why its so cheap! The only reason we booked this hotel was due to a mistake and needed a quick last minute hotel for one night. As for the pictures posted, Im not even sure where they got those pictures, they are not of the hotel!
The gentleman who checked us in was very nice and helpful during the day and everything looked decent. when we came back from Venice, it was like stepping into the twilight zone.
There is NO A/C except for in the lobby. NONE!! We had to open the windows, but they had no screens only metal security panels that went up and down by a rope. There were BUGS!
The bathroom smelled horribly. There was NO toilet paper, when my son went and asked for some, the front desk guy laughed at my son! But the bidet had a foul smell coming from it. There was only room for the beds in the room. The shower was a hole in the floor and it did not drain, it was blocked and there was "stuff/junk" coming up through the drain.
The hotel is not in an area you would want to stay with kids. with the windows open all we heard was traffic and other things. We got back to our room at about 12:30am and we packed up our things and left, due to the "women" out front. Its kinda hard answering your kids on why the ladies were on the street that late!!!!!!!!
I draw the line at bugs and no A/C or FAN when its scorching hot and the ladies.
Oh and if you do stay here, make sure you are on the early bus, or you and everyone else on the bus will be dropped/kicked off in the middle of the no where on your way back from venice and will have to walk and find your way back over 2 miles in the middle of the night in a not so nice area!
