First of all the location is completely inaccurate. The hotel manager blamed hotels.com for the mistake. Although the location is also incorrect in Google maps, they still blame it on whoever they can.
Second, the pictures of the hotel are not what you see. The hotel is in a shady street and the room we were given smelled like pesticides. There are only three parking spots and if you are not lucky to get one then who knows where you will park for the night, ouch!
The staff was nice though, but it is not worth the price. We ended cancelling our reservation and they kept one night since according to them hotels.com was at fault. Overall this hotel is really only worth about 80 bucks a night. I have been to hostels that are way better and are only 25 dollars per night.
