This is the sort of cute property you want to like but then there are gotchas.
My room - #103 – had no effective lock on the front door and the lock on the back door could have been picked with a paperclip.
Ignoring the security aspects, there were huge gaps around the door for bugs to come through. (I had a huge roach. So did my friend next door. Mosquitoes were everywhere .) I had to use furniture to jam the two sliding doors together to keep out the bugs.
The only “safe” on the property was a filing cabinet drawer in the office.
The A/C was not strong enough to cool a room in a reasonable amount of time in the very high heat of April so the hotel did let us leave the key in the power slot while we were out. (I was there with a tour group. An individual traveler might not have that offered.)
Wifi in room 103 was good. There is one computer in the main office –their official office computer—that they let us use too.
Read the reviews below for the good descriptions of the odd room configuration.
The price for the room seem high for the situation. I do wonder if the owner is investing properly on upkeep and maintenance. Next time I will look elsewhere.
