1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Guys, I ran across this hotel through some sites that gave me some impression that this hotel could be "good" with reasonable price. I made reservations through the website and everything went fine. But MAN, when I got there, what a DUMP! It smelled really bad and it is just more like a cheap Motel than a hotel. The rooms looked clean though, but they were smelly and I really was worried about bedbugs in the room. The restroom was ok, but I got the impression that someone used it before and the hotel did not clean it properly. The neighbourhood was HORRIBLE, with lots of beggars, no restaurants, and dark streets that gave me a really bad impression... I just paid for the stay and got away from there (I knew I wouldn't sleep easily there). That's the lesson, you get what you pay for. This "cheap" price is still a big lie. Guys, unless you're hopeless to get another better hotel (of course, paying a bit more for it), avoid this hotel AT ALL COSTS!!!

Room Tip: My best hint for you guys, do not stay in this hotel. Get away from here asap, ok?

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

We stayed here for two nights in August 2013.

The rooms were not very clean - we opened the fridge in our room, then quickly shut it again, just in case the contents were going to try to escape.

The pool wasn't available due to a problem with the drains - immediate examination of the area, looks like it hadn't been available for some time.

Breakfast was a nightmare, toast, cereal or donughts - there were only a few seats so people often had difficulties in being able to sit down.

We were glad it was only for a couple of nights.

It was interesting to see the ladies of the night touting their business on the highway opposite - but definitely not suitable to take young children.

Room Tip: Rooms at a different hotel would be better

You can almost see the top of Capitol Building from its parking lot. The room was OK, they just finished cleaning it when we arrived. Spacious (2 queen in first floor). They serve decent breakfast in the morning too.
