    Do not book this one!

    Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed. When I got to my room it was out dated, and the floor had sand on it. Then at night I saw a cockroach run across the floor. Now it’s tropical weather and I only saw one so I excused it. But I also had to work on this trip and their WiFi was terrible! I could complained three times and nothing was done to help. But the straw that broke me was being treated like a criminal every time I walked in the building. I was asked my name and room number every time and sometimes I had to show ID. It was insulting. I was supposed to stay 12 nights and left after three. I found a much better hotel around the corner.

    Very nice hotel

    I stayed at this hotel about 10 years ago, loved it then and loved it still. The front desk people are very knowledgeable and professional. They do a wonderful job when you first arrive at the hotel and upon check out was very easy. During the time of Covid everything has changed for all the hotel business and this hotel is no exception. But they seem to take all the precautions that are necessary. Stayed only one night while I was passing through the city and had a lot of good memories there from my past visits 10 years ago. Was the hotel where I first met my wife so it has good memories. Service personnel excellent and property is well kept and very clean. Proud to say that I stayed there and would recommend to anyone.
