The Pool area was nice and well kept but the room was a disaster. The Indian woman at the front desk was un-welcoming. It seemed like she was annoyed to have to check us in and in the morning when we tried to get breakfast, she also seemed annoyed to have to restock the extremely cheap walmart pasteries. The room smelled like an old smoking hotel. The air-conditioner did not work and the 2 of the 4 lights in the room had burned out light-bulbs. I will look for somewhere else to stay on my next visit to Independence.
