The foyer looked ok but it was all down hill from there.The room allocated (@$130) was small and uninviting; had dirty broken lounge, cushion with dried white stuff on it, tiny TV, pillows that already passed used by date, A/C not working with broken dial, noisy main road, bath tub waste not draining properly, worn carpet, one single cloth hanger, etc. Had some difficulty communicating with receptionist and couldn't impress her to have the A/C fixed...
And it got worse; the breakfast consisted of exclusively Kelloggs cereals (not sure how long the cereal had been out there), warm horrible coffee, warm water for tea, 8-10 warm mini frankfurts, a few scoops of scrambled egg cooked with rancid oil, a dozen rashes of half cooked smelly bacon - this was for all the guests!! By the way, the receptionist insisted the hotel was fully booked, and couldn't make any change to the room allocation. As far as I could see it was almost deserted - may be it was so for good reason.
