Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Location was excellent. However rooms were run down. Perfume mister going in hallway is only thing liking keeping the smell of hotel decent. I cannot believe they can claim to be a resort and charge a resort fee. This is definitely not a resort. In fact the pool, which is at a nearby hotel is so small we did not even use it.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very disappointed with my stay at the penguin hotel. Poor service, unprofessional staff, VERY pricey, not clean at all(hair and stains on the sheets) and my room was tiny and very uncomfortable. You literally pay lots of money for not being served in a proper way.

Okay, the breakfast was limited to just 4 kinds and everything was with egg which I don’t like so I had to pay for my breakfast which i was upset about it, the room was clean but small even tho you have ask for everything like the water, soup, shampoo etc. they never came and check if we need any even the water which they suppose to give us 2 every day. The location was prefect. Well at least you get what you paid for
