Receptionist was lovely. Property was clean...just very busy, and people were smoking near the entryway, which was a turnoff. I didn’t use the common room or pool. Kitchen was petty gross but it was In the middle of meal time...it was better in the morning so they’d obviously cleaned it up overnight. No aircon in room and it was pretty warm and very humid. Surprisingly quiet.
