We spent 2 nights at this hotel-- or shall we say dungeon-- one night on the way to our safari and one night after the safari. We all felt more dirty after our showers than before, plus we almost froze ourselves into icicles! There was one measly "wall heater" that didn't even WORK so even after adding 3 extra blankets (which were kept in an old closet and we suspected that they had never been washed) we were shivering under the covers. "Breakfast" was adequate, but they kept running out of food. Dinner was like elementary school cafeteria food, but without seasoning. We were slightly put off by the note accompanying the food, reading: "U MAY TIP THE CHEF! :) " Some of the staff were not so welcoming; others were okay. To be fair, some of them really did try to be helpful. On the bright side, they did call a cab for us to go to the mall for dinner the 2nd night (we couldn't bear a 2nd dinner at Emerald), and the airport shuttle was free. If you REALLY need a cheap stay after a night flight (after dinner time) and you have a VERY early flight (before breakfast time), then you might be okay if you bring warm pajamas and extra blankets.
