4/10 Fair

Not worth it
initially tried to give us smaller room next to elevator. lobby displays hadnt been dusted for a long time. Heat lamps over eggs, and other items not functioning. Building needs TLC. Cockroachs found in bathroom two out of three nights 3 am. Noisy. Bathroom needs more shelves for guests items. There are nice walks to old town... along beach and along promenade on higher road. NOTE THERE IS NO GYM AND NO WORKING LAUNDRY.
