Wifi was not working good, the hotel looked dirty and old. The employees were nice. Muna was at the front desk and really help us a lot! She was genuine and a really smart girl. Some of the people at the banquet were mad, it got very hot in there, and she handled the complaint really well and showed respect... More

Hotel is showing it's age, but the prices are reasonable. The pool and water slides were great fun for the kids. Some of the issues we had were that the door from the room to the pool area wouldn't latch. The room seemed very humid and if the air conditioning was turned on, it got too cold.

The reception area is old and tired looking. The rooms are even worse. The wallpaper is falling off. The carpets are filthy. The air conditioner fan is backwards. High means low and low means high. At least the medium is correct. :/ and it rattles. We put NOTHING on the floor but our shoes.

We stayed on a trip to visit our granddaughter & her mom. The price of the hotel was great; the pool, huge slide into the pool, the large hottub, along with the kids pool were very nice & well cared for. The hotel does need some updates & repairs, but for the price we paid it was just fine.
