Perhaps better signage to get to the hotel from the main road, and breakfast selection and services. Elevator a little rundown, and peak hour hot water may run out. A/C is sufficiently cold, parking may be limited.

Good location, there are convenience stores nearby, clean room, good spread of breakfast (except for the bread and buns they are quite dry). The staffs are helpful and friendly. The hotel is also walking distant to Philipino market and Welcome seafood restaurant.
