Room is clean, but bathroom needs a facelift
We have stayed at Hotel Solares four times and we get the same room each time. Over time the condition of the bathroom has deteriorated. The shower insert and faucet needs to be replaced. Mildew is being covered up with chaulking. Will probably give the hotel another shot because of the location to downtown. But it’s time for a bathroom facelift.
