The room was acceptable, but everything else was horrible. The towels was full of hair...disgusting. I saw 3 insects inside the room and restrooms...Luckily, we left really early the morning after. The patio is a little scary... Don't go there...keep out.

Dear Sandy, We take deposit $100 and we'll release it immediately after your check-out, but it takes around 2 days to be back on your card. We take deposit at check-in time. Best regards, Sofya
