We stayed here with a friend who took a room. We asked if we could stay in our small camper-van in the car-park and they said yes. When my buddy was checking in I gave the guy behind reception 3000 for the parking as a good will gesture. He took it rapidly and stuffed it under the counter. I then asked if we could use the pool. He asked for another 3000 which I gave him. This is $12 for parking and one person ONLY using the pool. There was no offer of using a shower or towels or any other facility other than parking. I was in the pool for 2 mins to cool off. The next day my buddy needed to stay another day as he was ill so paid for his room. Later the guy on reception came over and said he'd spoken to the owner. He said he wanted more money although didn't quite know how much which seemed strange if he'd discussed this with the owner. He wants another $10 for the parking again with no facilities for us. I doubt the owner knows about this so we are parking on the street as he's left it to 3pm to decide to tell us. Thanks a bunch! In contrast a hotel up the road when we asked for a similar arrangement wanted $8 for all facilities for us. They even offered power for the car as the $8 was for the power and water we would use. I do wonder if these hotels like the one reviewed here have a gram of business sense. The parking is quite empty and my offer of $6 for parking was rejected.
The restaurant is only open at certain times and they would not make any food outside these times for my sick friend.
