Very Average
Staff was nice and friendly. Check in took far too long. Arrived at dark and the place was pitch black. Toilet seat broken, shower broken, and the room was supposed to have AC, ended up having just a fan. The place is doing construction so it all looks like it is under repair. I’m sure it will be a lovely place one day, but they have a long way to go.
