We had a reservation for a room with king bed but found the plumbing under the vanity to be leaking on to the floor in the bathroom. The only room they could move us to was one next to the laundry with two double beds.
This is a old hotel that I would guess was originally built in the 60's and is in need of lots of work. Price is very low so I guess you do get what you pay for. Rooms have stucco walls that at the very least need cleaning or a paint job. Every plugin is used for lamps, microwave, alarm clock, fridge, etc. Furniture is very aged.
Outdoor pool is very nice and very well kept up. Quite a positive contrast to the condition of many other things.
Owners are very, very nice and appear to be trying to update units as they are able to but there's so much to be done that it's tough to recommend unless the traveler is able to overlook a lot of deficencies and a general lack of cleanliness. The room we were moved to had new carpet, bed coverings and also new bathtub/shower. Unfortunately, that was offset by the airconditioner that was almost falling out the fall, the aged furniture in the room, dirty walls, ceiling and the outer door with the two-tone paint job resulting from the paint peeling off it.
If you are willing to put up with these issues to get a low cost room, then I can recommend it. This would be good for the low cost traveler, temporary housing or someone looking for a hotel that gives a taste of hotels from 50 years ago. Otherwise you can do better but it'll cost you more. Maybe if the owners get much more renovating done soon, then others can give a better recommendation.
