Second time staying here, love that it’s walking distance to the beach and a lot of places to eat and shop or just walk around. Room did have a weird smell but it aired out once we turned the air conditioning on. Will stay here again in the future.

This hotel is at least 100 years old. The rooms are very small, the staircase creaks and there is only one very small slow elevator. The bathroom has one small shelf for you bag. There is a 100 year old desk and a only one very stiff chair to sit in. The staff was extremely nice and professional but there just isn't much you can do with this very old facility.

My door was left ajar for several hours after the room was cleaned. Staff told me the maid would be coached, but I felt unsafe and was not offered an apology. Overall, would not stay there again. Good location in SM - just noisy.
