          I stayed at Sunset Motel during May 2012. There was only a small convection heater. ( No Fan) Is it still the same? Water pressure was very poor. Advertised outside courtyard did not exist. Reception was chilly, (the staff and the room itself.) Mattress was very soft, beyond its life I would say. Washing your own dishes! This would be looked at by Council Health Inspectors in many countries worldwide. Many reviews overstating the views and room itself lead me to be cautious of reviewers with low ratings
