We stayed here for one night in Room #7. The room had been recently remodeled to update it - tile floors, wall hung lcd tv, marble countertops, and a beautiful bathroom. It was just as good if not better than fancy hotels like the hyatt or marriott. The room is pretty sparse with a mini fridge, desk and chair, nightstand, and two plastic chairs out front. The hotel is located in the center of town, but doesn't have any sort of view except of the parking lot. The highlight of staying there was the bathroom. The shower was huge and had great water pressure and an endless supply of hot water. The exhaust fan actually worked and cleared any steam out in no time. That was the highlight of our stay.
The rest of our experience wasn't so nice. The owners were adding on to the hotel next to our room so there was some construction going on during the day. Because of this, the cable was not working. The air conditioner never was able to cool the room to 78 degrees no matter how low you set it. That may have had something to do with the 1/2 inch gap in the wall around the air conditioner and around the door. I don't see how they do not have bug problems with these gaps that you can actually see outside through. The ice maker is located out in the parking lot which made it convenient, but allowed anyone or anything to get into it.
The last straw was when we looked underneath the sink to get some more towels that were lying there. That's when we saw two big holes in the wall were the water pipes come in to the sink. We walked out of our room to the other side of the wall where the construction was and found out that you could see into the bathroom as clear as day. So I'm sure the construction workers or who knows else got an eyeful. This was not what I wanted to be thinking about the rest of the day. I don't know if these openings were made on purpose or not, but i can't think of a good reason for something like this to be allowed to happen. As soon as we found this, we checked out.
Overall, The room was beautiful and clean, but with the air conditioner not working and the peep holes, there is no way I would recommend this place. There are just too many other options in town for the same price.
