I wanted to enjoy this hotel and judging by the photos on Tripadvisor, I knew that I was not getting a ton of amenities and that it would be a good place to relax at the end of the day.
Upon arrival, my husband and I were assigned a room that reeked of cigarette smoke, despite the non-smoking sign. The window was open and there were cigarette ashes sprinkled by the window. The room had apparently just been cleaned. Since my husband and I have breathing problems, I knew this would not work for 5 days.
We were then placed in a different room that was slightly cleaner, but still had...a smell. It smelled like older smoke but it was tolerable. We were happy that this room had hardwood floor as opposed to the carpet in the other room.
We then started to settle in and noticed a few things. There was an ironing board and no iron. The website stated there would be a hairdryer and there wasn't one. Apparently these need to be requested from the office, which we did and were given them to to take to our room.
After dinner we took our food back to our room and noticed another thing missing. The refrigerator. There was a huge spot for one and it was missing. Back down to the office, the manager said he would get us one for the next day and...gave us a cooler in the meantime. We never received a refrigerator the entire trip.
Overall, expect minimum amounts of towels, no amenities, smelly rooms, a sink clogged with hair, shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the bathroom (no tiny bottles), doors that dont close unless you slam them shut, and a very sparse room.
Literally, the only plus side was that the bed was comfortable and the air conditioner worked.
