Hotel is right next to a busy street and the beach. I’ve heard cars screeching, motorcycles revving, sirens day in and day out. Doors are so thin, you can hear people laughing, talking really loud at 1am. Pools/amemeties were always packed. Other than that, staff were extremely friendly with great customer service and were prompt to answer your wants and needs.

The elevators at the property take about ten minutes to pick you up. There is no ice machine on each floor so just imagine how frustrating it is to try and get some ice. Also the hotel needs a lot of updates.

I didn’t like that the room furniture is older than what it looks in the pictures. I didn’t like the fact that there is no privacy in the bathroom. There is no lock on the door and there are windows into the room. The pool was very small for the amount of people that stay in the hotel. Also there shouldn’t be a parking fee, that should already be included with your stay. They also don’t provide room cleaning at all during your stay. We stayed for 7 nights and we had to do our own cleaning like vacuuming. I did like the friendly staff, when I would request items they were quick to bring them. Dinning options were minimal and right now with using safe travels. We printed out our QR code for easy access but they didn’t even want to accept it. It was very annoying that we had to pull out our phones and find every persons code to show. They should have definitely sent an email or said when we booked that they would need us to pull it up.
