Stepping into the lobby I felt kind of indifferent about the place. I didn't realise what it was until I stepped onto their elevator and walked through the hallway to my room. The place was nice and clean but the interiors looked like one of the first hotels I stayed in 20 years ago. The room itself was big enough for me but the drab feeling extended into it from the hallway. The furniture looked old with a tv that felt the same way. The bathroom was clean but the design was poor. For the price I had to pay I really expected better than this. The pool was less than welcoming considering that there was nobody swimming in it and it was too blue for my taste that I felt something wrong with it. Nevertheless the food at the restaurant inside was great but then again I only had breakfast there. All in all the service that the whole staff provided was good and you can see that they're eager to please the guest but there is only so much they can do in a place that seemed left behind in the 80's.
