Old, seedy, run down, friendly. Posted Aug 19, 2015
My wife's face dropped when she saw the place. It doesn't just need a new coat of paint over the old stucco. It's had lots of those, and it looks old and seedy. Parking lot is in poor repair. Many of the room air conditioning units leak on the outside walkways, and little streams cross your path as you make your way to the room and leave black stains where they drip off the ledges. If you are not lucky enough to be on the top floor, air conditioner condensate leakage drips on you as you go to your room. The rooms are almost okay. They don't stink like some similarly run down hotels. They have laminate floors instead of carpet, which I don't like so well. The bathroom was not remodeled so well, and it was not very clean. The floor grout around the toilet is discolored, and the shower has black mildew stains on the tile and grout. The toilet had a film in areas inside where it hasn't been scrubbed. The swimming pool was discolored, making it look dirty, but it probably just needs new paint or new plaster. Staff was nice. Concierge was especially helpful. Overall, I did not like it.
