This hotel is in a great location and has a wonderful buffet breakfast however, there are some issues that we had. It was hot in our room and the hotel staff would not turn on the air conditioning. When the doors to the patio were open, the traffic noises were extremely loud so we had to pick between the two evils. We were on the east side, facing the main street so this might not be the case for all rooms.
In addition, a giant cockroach crawled up the bathroom grate and when we mentioned this, we were blamed for having our patio door open and allowing the insect to fly (without wings) into the room.
The overall attitude of the front desk was fairly poor and it was only when the cockroach made an appearance that they offered any sort of friendly behavior. We were even subtly blamed for our key cards repeatedly not working over the last three days of the visit.
Not a hotel I will return to but it didn't ruin our vacation.
