My first hint was when our local tour guide asked why we chose this location over the County Inn and Suites on the Canal...This hotel's condition and furnishings are dated for American standards and the management appears to recognize this with the amount construction going on. The construction workers seem to be very energetic, (as they started work as the sun rose between 6:30 am and 7:00 am, removing tile or concrete with a hammer and chisel...tap...tap...tap...) If you are staying just above the breakfast area, you will not need to worry about the construction noise as it will be drowned out from the traffic noise that comes in through the broken window.
Overall the bathroom we had lacked a working shower head and a fan to remove the humidity. Also, be careful in the tub as ours was very slick.
On the upside, the pool area was clean. The rooms, while dated and needing attention, were clean. Breakfast was also very plentiful, although some of the food appeared to have some common traits with the food from the TGI Fridays next door. Security in this area also appeared to be good.
A good evening meal can be found at the Grill (can't remember the name) on he other side of the Chinese Casino. Service was very good, reasonably priced and came with a few good smiles.
