    Cheap decent hotel - nice traditional breakfast - nice staff - pool was perfect for the size of the hotel - an ok Best Western

    Poor location - not in a good area of town - not good if you have kids with you - very dodgey at night - won't stay there again for this reason only!

  • Group of friends

    Its cheap enough and it has a pool.

    The location is downtown and isn't safe to walk about at night time. From every angle of the hotel you can see people dealing drugs and openly smoking crack pipes both day and night. Equally nowhere to eat or drink as the bars are full of drug takers.

  • Older travelers

    Clean room,bathtub,pool,nice staff, free international phone calls.

    The area was dangerous with drug dealers and homeless people walking around.Rooms were very dark and dingy.
