Smokie room and loud party

Checked in went to my non smoking room it smelled like smoke. Asked for another room it also smelled like smoke. No more rooms to look at. On way to room had to walk thru approx. 8 people having a beer drinking party. Management would not give refund. Very poor customer service. \n

limited wifi

WiFi internet access range is limited, and for the room that we stayed in it was unavailable, and had to go to the open-air guest lounge to access it.

not worth the money

The rooms are old and the beds and funiture are very worn. The kitchenette is a joke.
