Negative Reviews

Very basic and dated hotel

Guests say that the hotel is very basic. The décor is old, dingy and plain disgusting. The whole place is dirty and guests say the pool in the hotel is horrifying to use as it has dead animals in it. The breakfast provided is a joke with stale doughnuts and burnt coffee. Several guests say they would not stay again at the hotel even if they are paid to do so.

Dirty, cramped rooms; non-functional amenities

The rooms are dirty and run-down. Guests say hardly anything worked. Lights are burned out, air conditioning barely worked and the rooms take a long time to cool. The wall papers are hanging off the wall. The mattresses are filthy, old and sagging, and the sheets do not fit. The comforters have cigarette burns on them. There is no trim around the exit door. The space is cramped as well with table and chairs crammed into a corner. The microwaves and refrigerators are rusted and worn out.

Unclean bathrooms

Bathrooms are unclean. Guests say they resorted to using flip-flops in the shower. There is mildew in the shower and the shower curtains are appallingly dirty. The bathtubs have black scum all around. The showers have no middle ground. They are either scalding hot or freezing cold.
