we booked it on priceline. once we got there, we were told there was a mandatory $25 nightly extra charge. This is illegal and hopefully there will be a class action law suit about this against priceline soon as there is lots of complaints about such mandatory hidden charges on the internet.
aside from that, this place was DEAD in high season. there was no one in the lobby and it was spooky and DEPRESSED . it seemed like more than 3/4 of the rooms were vacant, and yet they managed to give us the worst possible room in the whole hotel, which had no windows, had furniture in poor condition and had a musky odor. the reasoning they gave us for the terrible room was "you booked on priceline".
even forgiving the poor choice for the room. this hotel is a 3 star at the very best.
