Older building had unique decor. Bathroom was small and cramped.

This place was so cool!! It gave me Havana vibes! It was a little dated but I didn’t mind, I enjoyed every little bit of the vintage vibe, staff was very friendly, the only thing was the flooring around the pool needs to be fixed but all in all my family and I enjoyed our time here !

Location was good. Price was okay. Pool looked nice. Good shower. However, the air conditioner in my room was so LOUD that it was hard to sleep. I would stay there again, but I would want a different room.

The beds were way too hard, uncomfortable and old. The shower was too small and the view we had was of construction.

I absolutely loved the lobby it had a retro vibe. It was full of beautiful plants and open welcoming space, but that's pretty much it. I booked a room at this hotel to be close enough to the riverwalk but not quite on it, and to enjoy relaxation by the pool. The pool was anything but nice nor was it relaxing. Old, run down, lacking of maintenance, and neglected surroundings. Sitting by the pool was the furthest thing from enjoyable. The room was ok, clean enough and comfortable bed but run down, old surroundings and nothing like the website pictures. The wallpaper was peeling off, the shower is old and plastered on, the curtains were hanging off, and the amenities were lacking. Small bathroom seemed quite cluttered with plenty of fan folded towels, really? I don't need a fan folded washcloth, I'd rather have a hair conditioner to go with the shampoo. Pics attached.

The location of hotel was good ! But the room was connected to another room so needless to say, everything was heard from the other room.

I enjoyed the hotel’s location close to the Riverwalk and the short distance to the down town area. The room was clean but not very well maintained (for example, the air conditioner was missing a part and the curtains were hanging loose at one end).
