    So convenient location, accommodating staff, pretty clean venue, fairly good breakfast. Air conditioning room - bed was really comfy. Complimentary drinks at pool bar, outstanding service. Loved that it was a 10-15 minute walking distance from Ihop; I ate there couple of times.

    Great

    I loved the hotel! This property was functional! The room was new, besides it had a microwave oven, coffee & tea makers and a fridge, just in case. Hotel was close to a supermarket and stores. Again, it was approx 10-15 minutes' walk from an outdoor mini - golf course.
