The complementary breakfast wasn't bad, but that is really all I can say for this place as far as liking it.
The tiles in the bathroom were broken and water squished from underneath them every time you walked on them, the air conditioner quit working, the pool looked like it had been deserted for years, and I'm pretty sure one night there were men/boys riding dirt bikes down the upstairs balcony. Then on a separate night there were teenagers outside being loud and trying to convince someone be to jump off the balcony. I was not impressed with this hotel and will not stay again in the future. THIS IS NO PLACE FOR SMALL CHILDREN.
