At first glance this hotel is very inviting with a lovely pool and common area gardens. Just don't go into the rooms. We checked in without a reservation and did not look at the room before paying.

If you are looking for luxury or a resort-type experience, this is not it. Overall it is extremely clean, and safe, and really good people work there.

This hotel was in a great location (one block from the beach, 10 min from downtown) and is good value for the price (at the time of reservation $50/night and the 6th and 7th night free). The rooms were very basic, with no phone, but with a TV (I don't know what channels were available because I didn't turn it...
