It's a good budget hotel and really only for just 1 or 2 nights stay. Rooms need a bit more refurbishing and carpet more cleaning. WiFi is good. Staffs I'd say average. Don't expect too much for a low price hotel. At least you can have a good sleep.

Staff not helpful, room smelt of stale smoke, no hot water in the morning, half a curtain and half a screen door in the shower (!) and generally tired looking all over. Great location near the beach, but that's about it for positivity.
