Please, do not make the same mistake we did, do not stay here. This place is way overpriced. The pictures are totally deceiving. This place is a scam. For $189 dollars we got a room that looked like a 1970's truck stop. This room was on par with hotels that I stayed at in Costa Rica for $10 a night and that is a third world country. I am not exaggerating. Holes in the wall, dirty napkins in the drawers, broken smelly refrigerator, stains and burns on the carpets, broken windows, beds feel like a piece of plywood on some springs ( I actually got bruises from the springs). Oh yeah and that fireplace they show you in the pictures, it doesn't work. I can't forget to mention that the guy running the front desk had a long pinky finger nail, which he quickly hid when he saw me spot it. For the uninformed, people commonly grow a long pinky nail like this as illegal substance scoops to scoop and measure out illegal substances. What a family atmosphere! To top it off they told us of their continental breakfast from 8-10. We showed up and the lady looked at us like we were crazy. She did try and offer us some coffee that she had made for herself. No thanks, we couldn't wait to leave this place.
