I have stayed at this property many times. I have always found the service very friendly and helpful. The rooms have always been very clean. Great value for the price.

This is a basic motel type room. Rooms surrounding a common courtyard and pool, two floors. The room was clean and comfortable, but just basic amenities and a very minimal breakfast (cold, not hot). The price was really cheap though and I did sleep well, so definitely worth it if you are on a budget. I'd stay again.

Ok let's see, room was dirty, key cards had to be reprogrammed after every use. The bathroom door knob would hang up making it a 5 min exit process from the bathroom. Pool was nice and AC worked well that's the 1 star.

The excellent service of the people that run the place, is is a reflection of the excellent quality of the rooms. The carpets appeared brand new and we're absolutely clean. The beds were fantastic. Also an extra sheet on top of the blanket to absorb the humidity. Everything worked. The lamps, the TV, the coffee pot, and the airconditioner, all...
