“Worst Ever, don't do it!”
Reviewed 29 March 2008

The was the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel in my entire life. The accommodations were very poor and the service was disgusting. The beds must be 15 years old. They were squeaky and the mattresses were in bad shape. There was sand on the floor when we checked in and you couldn't walk barefoot without it sticking to you. It transfered to the beds and to every room as you walked about. The room was tiny and the psudo-kitchen was in the condition of a poor college apartment. The owners declined to make the usual breakfast because there were not enough customers staying there that night. They were not apologetic nor did they credit any money back to us even though the package we booked said that breakfast was included.

If you like sub-standard accommodations. horrible service and bad neighborhoods then this is the place for you!
