6.0 Okay
Pros:Overall the staff was very accommodating, the location was great, and you get pretty much the basics that you'd want: cable tv, a fridge, microwave, a nice big bed, and working air unit.
Cons:the price was fair, but one thing I absolutely could not stand was the daily solicitations from one of the staff that I buy water or coffee. He would repeatedly knock on my door and almost even enter my room if I didn't answer quickly enough. It was infuriating. Housekeeping had a similar problem in that if you didn't answer them soon enough, they'd just take it as permission to enter the room which made the door signs for housekeeping useless. I could've went without the constant yelling across the courtyard from the housemaids.
2.0 Bad
Pros:Dirty! Really dirty! I don't know why they got those good revives, I travel a lot, and read reviews before I book my hotels, this one was a totally mistake!
9.6 Excellent
Pros:The room , the colors , and the cleaness of the room
Cons:I didn't like that you could not renew your stay
10.0 Excellent
Cons:I didn't care for the third floor.
8.6 Great
Pros:They had great customer service and the rooms were super clean.
Cons:The bathroom, while clean, could use a bit of a face lift. This isn't necessarily a con, just a suggestion.
