Run Down & Bad Value - has good Covid Protocols
Run down place in a low income apartment complex in a low income part of town. Things were old. But, beds were clean. If you care about Covid, it is probably a decent place for you because the staff make everything comepletly contactless and you never meet a human being. But, this does make the service a bit disappointing. Bad value for money.

2/10 Poor

Old sheets and blankets lying around on balconies. Property generally dirty. Restaurant no longer open. No spare pillows and one blanket very dirty. Air con wouldn't turn off and crack in basin. Plastic mugs with chips. Very disappointing and over priced at $270. Never again.

6/10 Good

The property is a good basic place to stay, close to the airport, but is pretty unkept on the outside and around the pool area. Pool was very clean, but dead weeds, sticks and leaves etc. were lying around. It was pretty clean, but very dated and old. Beds were comfortable though, and overall, you get a good nights sleep for what you pay for. Reasonable rates.
