In need of a renovation
The hotel is in need of a renovation. It was clean but needs to be updated. There is a $30/day resort fee. Not sure why as the pool is nothing special. We did not use the workout facility so I cannot comment on that. The bar has a nice vibe and the drinks were good. The staff was friendly. The hotel is in a good location. Within walking distance to most things. Not sure I would stay here again do to the rundown feeling of the hotel. There are plenty

Overall good stay for 2 nights. There should be non paid parking for guests staying at the hotel? Please improve on the quality of the buffet breakfast. Very poor quality and presentation.

Air Conditioner Unit and Ceiling Panels
The ceiling panels in our room (near the bathroom) were not closed, and the air-conditioner noise was horrendous.
