This hotel inbetwenn a house on the left and an elementary school to the right. Across is a shack and a little bodega. Don't get me wrong the hotel is very clean, but the window views made me squirm.
This hotel has no parking, no pool, no high speed internet, no business center, and no view!
I also noticed that there were many elderly foreigners staying at the hotel, and allowing young, Filipina, girls come and out of their room. Definitely was not happy with this brothel picture! Should've expected this by looking at their room rates!
I had unfornate encounter with the manager, when I refused to pay for drinks charged to my room. I had bought the drinks from the market, and placed them to cool in their mini bar. One of the maids made of mistake of counting the drinks I bought, and charged it to my room.
The manager refused to remove the charge from my bill, and threatened to garnish the amount on my bill from one of the maids. I was really pissed off that she had planned to do that. It's bad eneough that these maids make less $1.00 per day, and now she wanted to garnish $7.00 from their paycheck. This place is money hungry, and has no remorse for it's custumers nor their staff.
I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone! Pick another hotel or you will end up like me, writing a negative review on tripadvisor!
