We stayed here on July 3rd, 4th and 5th in 2011. We checked in and the people at the desk were nice. We were able to check in early without delay. The two Queen room was a decent size, but fairly "bare bones". Just a tiny TV with few channels, no phone, fridge, safe or iron. No big deal considering the price and thankfully it had a good air conditioner! NOT the portable kind that required you to empty buckets!
The breakfast buffet was about average. Nothing special. The Burrito place inside was quite good and would go there again. We never tried the lunch buffet.
Beds are clean and comfortable. My mom complained that the pillows were not soft enough, but I had no problems with them.
My only advice is that the next upgrade should be to some 37-40" LCD TVs in the deluxe rooms. In other hotels they came with them. It's nice being able to watch a movie late at night on a bigger screen. I know it's nice to save electricity, but TVs are cheap these days. Other hotels offered more channels as well. This is a budget hotel, so I guess this explains it.
I'd visit again, this is now perhaps our 2nd favorite hotel on the island (out of only 3 we tried). We may go here again to save a little money.
