Great budget hotel right off the main drag and blocks from the beach. Room was basic but comfortable and clean. The staff were the ones who make the place worth returning!
Frank, us3 night trip
Good 6.0 sucks at customer service!
Did not get the room we booked. Complained to and front desk. Nobody seemed to care. We opted for the most expensive room available and got no promised balcony or Mountain View. We were shoved in a hole of a room where all the smoke from people who actually had pouches/balconies would fill the room

Fair 4.0
Disappointed with Service and overall feeling
The pool site has an overall good feeling, a bit run down but still ok to enjoy. Rooms are small, and AC wasn't working correctly. Rooms are old and run down. Very disappointed with the service, especially from the front desk. Unfriendly, and not willing to listen. Even prepaid all my rooms, they wanted me to charge the double. They claimed that my credit card was not working. Check-out took me nearly 1.5h. Even they were running a scam, there was no sorry from their side. Traveled with a friend who booked over an other website and experienced exactly the same. I would not recommend staying there.

Great three star hotel.
This is not a five star hotel. It was great for what it was. They have a nice pool, a great bar, best massage place I have experienced on this trip, and very friendly staff. I read other reviews where people felt they were being ripped off. That didn't happen to me at all. I will stay here again.
