OK if it's your only option

I waited until the last minute and ended up at this hotel, which at the rate I got is definitely not wort it. In the first room I got, the doorknob was broken and the twin beds looked like hammocks. Luckily, I was able to obtain a room changed (due to the faulty doorknob), which was slightly better. However, the room wasn't exactly comfortable. There was only one electrical outlet in the room, which was in the bathroom and I could only reach it by raising my arm over my head and standing on my toes (I'm 1.63 m/5'3"). There is no Wi-Fi in the building but there are two computers where you can access the Internet at a pretty reasonable rate. The staff was mostly courteous and would answer questions when asked but they wouldn't volunteer any info/services. I also write "mostly" because my first morning there, the cleaning lady opened the door to my room and asked, yelling, that she was there to clean the room. I asked her if she could please come back later (as it was only 10 a.m.) and she basically told me that it'd be then or the next day. I told her she could come back in an hour and a half. Another helpful piece of information is that this is not just one hotel, but about three or so -hence the name "Complex" in Spanish-, so try to find out which one you'll be staying in before you get off from the cab (or you might have to haul your luggage up a small hill). The hotel is off secondary road, perpendicular to Antonio Machado, the main seaside road, which makes it convenient.
