Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was terrible. The room was dirty when we got there. We never got clean towels or a clean blanket after requesting for three days. We asked for the room to be cleaned and it was cleaned over the stay. The staff seemed to not care. Nothing was done to to correct the problems. The hotel was dirty throughout and things were broken. It’s rating should be lowered.

Older hotel, but great location next to the beach. I wouldn’t of mention this but the room said city view(not the reason I got it). Once we got to the room the only view was of a fleet of a/c units on top of the building next to us. I’m sure there are some rooms with great views, but I wouldn’t book this one with a city view.
