The reception area was dark and seedy. Built like barrack blocks sandwiched between a big liquor store, a booze barn and a large dusty bus park at the back, not a bit of green in sight ('garden'?) The rooms have seen better days.
Everything was organised for the bus tours (if the bus tour people had finished their meal the restaurant closed early), no breakfast. Service for ordinary people was bad, if you asked for something you were treated as a nuisance.
Not an experience to be repeated.
