"Clean and comfortable hotel wins no prizes for beauty."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The first thing I looked for was bedbugs. None. I looked again. None. Good, so far.Everything worked fine. The bed was comfortable, the linens soft from years of laundering, the shower excellent. I arrived at 11 pm and got a good night's sleep. Staff was efficient and professional. However, if you are a stickler for up to the minute surroundings, go elsewhere. Last updated in, I'm guessing, 1986, this hotel offers the basic comforts but no more amenities. I was glad to get there, as I was tired from the travel and missed connection. To me, the hotel was perfectly adequate. Glamorous, no. But then, I wasn't paying for glamour.

"Mattress Hard, Room Needed Updating and Painting"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I thought there would be continental breakfast, but you had to pay for it. I had to pay for parking too. For the room rate, the rooms should have been updated a lot. I'm not going back to this hotel.

"0"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel is old, falling apart. The main entrance is held by metal post and no signs of fixing it. It smells bad from the entrance to the bedroom. Just arriving to the place is scary, for it is hidden among bushes and garbage of the neighborhood. The shuttle is in pieces, even the side door is held by a rope. It took forever to pick up from the airport. I cannot believe it is not condemned.
