    Property condition


    The property is in a good position within easy walking distance to the old town, bars, shops and restaurants and the beach. The breakfast is very basic, only offering Chamomile or decaf tea. I found the bed very uncomfortable it was extremely hard. There isn't a hair dryer in the room but thankfully I had taken one. There was only one socket in the room so taking a multi usb charger is usefull if you have more than one phone/tablet to charge.

    The rooms we had were on the first floor were very small and not clean at all. Location was great but that’s about it. Breakfast was also disappointing, go across the street to Eddie’s.

    Great location near Old Town and just happy it was only a pit stop for the night. Don’t get me wrong, the people at the front desk were real nice but the hotel needs some work. We were given the first room when you walk into the hotel (room 300). Felt like I was in a jail cell! The room was located in the lobby of the hotel and as you can imagine, the traffic and noise level was very high. Pretty sure it was a handicap room because the entry way had two wooden doors that were paper thin. Cobwebs, stained blankets, and a dirty straw that was left behind from a prior guest. The carpet was disgusting as well. Not to mention, the mattresses literally felt harder than concrete. The air conditioning and the view from the window down to Old Town was the best part about the room. Fortunately we didn’t stay in the room for too long. Let’s just say we didn’t sleep too well (or at all).
