OMG where do I begin. Depak/sixpack was a pleasant and conversational. He did offer to cook breakfast. But that is where it ends. Based on the reviews in 2019, I did not expect much. And I did not get much. Had I been in a position to change hotels I would have, but my schedule was so tight, I could not afford the time to search for better accommodations.

In the case of this hotel, not only is the owner willfully neglectful, but he does not care. If you stay here do so at your own risk.
I am a health and safety inspector so the following as been well documented.

1) There was no hot water, I do not mean that it ran out, but it was non existent.
2) There were large gaps around the doors which allowed critters and bugs to enter the room at night.
3) The room had not be vacuumed in God only knows how long. I personally made sure that my feet had coverings. I am including a photo of the dirt on my socks from the dirty carpet.
4) The sofa was covered with stains, dirt, human hair, and had distinct odor.
5) The bed, well 1970s wants their pillows back ! The linens were worn out at best.... and then
5.1) under the circumstances, you can understand why I unmade the bed.... once the blanket (below) was removed, there was blood stains, not old ones .... fresh ones on the top sheet. LOL I called old depak and told him that I would like fresh sheets, he said "why?". LOL I told him there were blood stains on the sheets.... he said "which one?" WTF .. what do mean which one? He tried to give me 1 sheet, I explained that under the circumstances I did not trust his bed was clean.
5.2) I kept the "clean?" sheet and used it cover the sofa. He actually asked me why?
6) There was human hair on the blanket, so God (and depak) only knows when the last time it was washed.
7) There was filth and dirt on every surface from the remote control to the counters and appliances. Pictures included.
8) The tub/shower was an absolute freeking nightmare. The tub had soap scum ring around it. I mean one you could write your name in. Based on the reviews I came prepared for uncleanliness, but this was horrific. The pictures you will see will show the dirt running down the side of the tub. After cleaning the tub with disinfectant I realized that the drain did not properly work and the water backed up in to the tub...hence the soap ring. So imagine standing in the ankle deep water oozing from the drain in the tub.... oh no way!
9) The pool had a green tinge to the sides and ring around the edge. I was without my water sample kit or I would have documented that too.
10) NO ICE !! Really?
11) No Coffee, that is just cheap ass.

I spent 2 miserable nights in this hell hole. on the first night at 2 am, I woke to crickets crawling from out of the bath sink drain (which by the way was broken). It was like something for a horror movie. I stuffed Kleenex tissues in the drain, to try and keep them out. pictures included.

An owner who does not provide a clean and sanitary hotel does not deserve (1*), Perhaps these folks who left (5 *) have a different tolerance to cleanliness or perhaps they were simply luckier than me?

This property looks pretty nice from the outside, especially being in a fairly depressed area. The smell of curry hit me full force on entrance to the lobby. Fortunately I love curry! The owners/managers were very pleasant and helpful. My boyfriend and I were allowed a very early check-in which was much appreciated. The room was large & no frills. The hot tub was empty and the pool unappealingly dirty. These things would have been fine, but the lack of cleanliness of the room would keep me from returning. The microwave & refrig were filthy. The ceiling fan blades covered with grim. The shower curtain bottom moldy. I could go on but I think you get the drift. Additionally, during a 2 night stay the room was not made up. Thankfully, the trash was emptied, but seriously when did it become ok not to make the bed and provide fresh towels & coffee??? With good housekeeping, a little updating in decor and a few repairs this could be a great property!

I was a solo traveler and the ONLY person staying at this hotel. The front desk person glared at me when I walked in, didn't greet me, and automatically grabbed the only reservation she had. She was beyond creepy. They gave me an old card key that had been used dozens of times before by the look and feel of it. She didn't tell me where my room was, so I had to look at the site map myself. When I went to my room, an unidentified man was standing right in front of my door pointing to it. And later, three men were standing right in front of my room every time I entered and left. This is completely unsafe and I wouldn't stay here for free. Half-used toiletries in the room, stained toilet, dirty linens, curtains that didn't close all the way (with men standing directly outside of them), green and unclean pool, trash strewn about the property (behind the main building so you don't see it until you check in and it's too late, in this case it was mattresses and appliances), room door did not close securely and seemed partially open, huge opening at the bottom of the door where bugs could easily enter, shall I go on? This place is DISGUSTING. I feared for my life walking this property and I left before I could set my suitcase down.

I hate to give terrible reviews because I'm possibly affecting someone's income, but the room was not clean. Carpet had not been vacuumed in awhile. Refrigerator was sticky inside. I had to wash out the drinking glasses before using them. Yes, they were gross. Vanity fluorescent light blinked like a disco ball. The pool water looked green, and I'm not going to even try to describe the hot tub. The view from my room was of a shack housing the pool pumps with a burned out (or possibly just rusty) ice machine on the side. I just don't get the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Maybe I just got he worst room with the worst view, with the worst maintenance and cleaning job.

The staff was nice and the room was cheap. Two good points.
