Only for convenience to airport
Posted Feb 18, 2011 on Hotels
This place really needs upkeep. I would not choose it for a vacation spot. It is fine for convenience to airport. Hard to tell if a bathroom is clean if the toilet is broken. Honestly, a hotel should change toilet seats, say, every forty years. The toilet was wobbly, and the seat was -- yuck! -- 10 shades of stains of brown and yellow, and broken. Also, handle fell off in my hand every time if I didn't wiggle it just so. The bathtub had no way to plug the drain, so could only be used as a shower. The room walls had random paint sloppily brushed over some cracks in the walls. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were really nice, clean and fresh (they hung them outside.) The view was nice and it had a very pretty and large balcony. The hotel just really needs some money put into upkeep and lots of things in the room needed fixing and replacing. For instance, a hotel should not have a cheap fiberboard cabinet in the bathroom. It will be sure to break and hang at an angle, which is exactly what this one did. Expect only half of the lightbulbs to work. I had to work really hard to get the balcony doors to shut and lock; everything in the hotel concerning doors was askew. The room had a funky smell that I couldn't dispel even after leaving balcony doors open for hours. The bar and restaurant are rather lovely, and ALL the staff were professional and very pleasant. The food was way overpriced and the food nothing special. This place on the whole seems greatly overpriced for what it is: a place to sleep before an early flight at the nearby airport. And oh, yes, expect to pay a LOT for the one-mile taxi ride to the airport.
