2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Most of the hotel was as clean as it could be, given the condition of the walls, hallway, furniture overall, but the bathroom was not clean and it seemed like there was a water problem in the hallway. That was acceptable for the price - you get what you pay for! However, the checkout policy was not as advertised on the website --absolutely no options for a late checkout-- and the staff did not inform us of any amenities while checking in, including the hotel breakfast that we missed.
