We previously stayed at this same hotel about 4 years ago and everything was fine then. We loved the location, meaning walking distance to downtown and you can view the island and the bridge from the beach. Well, about a week before we were to leave, I found the reviews on here and was very worried about what we had to look forward to. Well, like I said, you shouldn't judge.
The outside could definitely use some sprucing up and there was a weird smell in the office when we checked in. Check in was a smooth process and they had the coupons for the package we purchased when we reserved the room. We got to our room and everything was fine. The room was clean, my husband also checked for bedbugs and found none. There was plenty of towels for my family, in fact I asked the maid for more and she gave me more than requested. The bathroom was clean along with the shower. Since the room was okay, we decided to stay another night and went back to the office to book the last night.
This isn't a top of the line, brand new out of a box hotel. It is an establishment that has been is this city for many years and it looks like it. If you are looking for something that is shiny and pretty, go somewhere else. If you want a place that is cheap and clean and just want to hang out between going to the island, the bridge and the UP, then this is the place.
