Reasons to stay here: Restaurant patio and Bar actually enables you to forget for a few hours where you are. Great (really really good!) wifi throughout. Highly visible hired security staff outside. This hotel provides a great retreat from the daily existence on the ground in the surrounding areas. The rooms are relatively clean if a bit sparse. The A/C is cold, the tv works and they have very fast wifi everywhere. FaceTime, Skype or streaming videos all worked very well. The well appointed fitness room might be the only one for a very long way because it gets quite full from time to time.
Reasons to consider alternates: Road in (once you depart pavement) can be pretty rough slow going. Housekeeping, daily cleaning is somewhat limited by western standards but adiquate. Towels don't always match etc. Current renovation project can make day time a bit noisey depending on what they are working on that week. Noise was never an issue for us but we were out from 8-5. Depending on what business brings you to town, location is either great (short travel time) or terrible...
Context: power goes out for a few minutes while onsite generators spool up, 2-5 times per day. There will never be a mint on your pillow, but you will have 4 pillows and clean sheets. The menu is big enough to stay here for a few weeks and not get bored, but as is typical outside E/U & N.A. what you order and what you get may not always match expectations. Breakfast never disappointed.
