2/5 Poor

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Cheapest price we could find but not worth it.
The staff was vary had to communicate with. The room was ok but the floors were pretty dirty. The AC was only on one side so it froze people in the first room while in the other room people were sweating. It wasn't the worst hotel I have ever been in but I would never get this hotel again.

4/5 Good
