|Apart from the general outside cosmetic appearance, it has changed considerably from the photos, not for the better. |This is a 2* hotel. Our room was spacious with a super king size bed, fridge, air con, tv, a long table, 2 bedside tables and a w/c with shower.|The room, bed and shower were clean. The staff were polite and friendly. |The "included breakfast" consisted of serial (one variety), milk and coffee - that's it! There is also a toaster (supply your own bread) and a microwave (supply your own suitable food).|The shower never got any warmer than a cool luke warm - qualifies as a cold shower in my book. Only one sachet of shower gel and shampoo between 2 people! |The meagre breakfast (if indeed it can be called that), cold shower and lack of shower supplies let this hotel down badly. Also a charge of $20/25 for bag storage (15 mins or over) is extortionate and way above any other hotel that I have stayed at around the world.|We stayed for 3 nights and no sign of housekeeping. |They need to re-evaluate their guest service, and change the photos.

1. This is NOT hotel; motel; nor AirBNB. It's a creepy place where guy pick up *lizards* on the street and come here to do their business. You will hear hum up down noice middle night and door continue slamming through out the night 2. Breakfast!!!! It's cereal and milk. I am not lying. Message another other post writter to confirm. The hotel put Breakfast include so their hotel can pop up at search. 3. It's not cheap if you add all HIDDING FEE. ($25 CASH only deposit each day) and will not give you back at check out because they come up with excuse to do so. Another $25 parking fee/ day. (TOTAL $135= $85 + $25 + $25). It is same price with Best Western *plus* at 2 right light away if you book directly at their website 4. This place is dirty; disgusting; unsafe. A. Unsafe: The lady will come in your room and check out your stuffs for valuable items when you are not their. B. Dirty: the sheet still have hair left over from previous customer so as make up mark on one of the pillow C. Disgusting: Bed bugs; spiders; cockroaches will accompany you while you sleep all night.
