5.1 Passable
Pros:Good location and nice pool
Cons:Expensive parking, lots of mold on the AC vents
6.2 Okay
Pros:The rooms were spacious, and the staff were nice.
Cons:The rooms, especially the bathrooms are a bit dated. It would be a good idea for the hotel to go through a remodel. But it was clean and everything worked, just needs to be brought out of the 90s.
6.0 Okay
Pros:The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the location is ok. The view is pretty good as well.
Cons:Evidently the room had just been "refreshed" however the bathroom was extremely dated with cheap metal fittings that reminded me of my early days in the Army. The layout of the room was bizarre to say the least so much so that you would have to turn your head 90 degrees to watch the TV from the bed. The air conditioning is pre-set to 25 degrees Celsius which in the wet season is not sufficient and the room is hot, this is not an acclimatization issue as we are from North Queensland and we found it oppressive to the point we had to have both the fan and air conditioning on at the same time to be comfortable.
2.5 Bad
Pros:The bartender luke was very professional
Cons:They gave disable room with garage view , no transportation and no room service even when I checkin at 1130 pm . Shame when the hotel was empty. They need to learn some management hospitality.
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:Views were great both mountain view and ocean. Even nice location about 10 minutes to city center along the great esplanade.
Cons:Very very dated needs complete Reno. Plus they must not look up when they clean. All the vents and doors were sooo dirty We stayed in a two bedroom condo which could have been wonderful expect the furnishings were so old and made everything feel so unclean. Plus 6 nights and no new towels etc. wifi slow or non If privately own condos they shouldn't rent people's who aren't updated as $200 per night and it was 2 star only
