The filth in this place was absolutely the worst I have ever seen. The children's feet became black within half an hour walking on the carpets, the kitchen floor had gobs of gunk stuck to it, the furniture had massive stains and spots on it and smelled so much you didn't want to sit on it.
The bathrooms were incredibly dirty with plenty of bugs both in the tubs and on the walls. We refused to take a shower. Far worst of all was the giant cockroach we killed in the room which made us take a hasty exit and book a room across the street at the Hotel Del. It may be more expensive but it was worth every extra cent to be in a clean, fresh-smelling, and beautiful room.
The staff at El Cordova was very nice, and the tile is certainly pretty. But I cannot imagine they will stay in business much longet with the abominable condition of the guest rooms. They still use keys and the flimy doors looked like a 5 yr-old could break in. Very very old and decrepit hotel badly in need of a total overhaul.
