“Pass on this "Paradise"....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2008

This is an older hotel and not the cleanest or freshest smelling. The air conditioner vent had about a years worth of dust/grime in it. Considering that we were there for the first heat wave of the year - it should have been cleaner. The sheets had black grease marks on the corners. The wicker furniture was filthy; sticky arm rests and dirty cushions. Carpet in the room was less than clean. And the walls were extremely thin; including the outside wall; making conversations of those arriving to their own rooms well known to us in our room. But I think the most disturbing part of the room's appearance was the clear plastic garbage bag placed strategically over the smoke detector. We wondered if staff or previous guests had placed it there. I think that may be a violation of fire codes??!
The only plus - very nice towels - plush, large and absorbent! Oh, and the beautiful Japanese gardens outside the back of the motel.
Other than that, I'd recommend staying elsewhere....

  • Liked — towels and the garden
  • Disliked — room filth, thin walls, smoke detector being covered - such a no-no!

Yes this is an older hotel...60 years old in fact. Unfortunately this guest had shown up right in the middle of our Spring clean-up. The carpets have all been cleaned and we are in the process of cleaning all the A/C units and their filters. Up until recently the cool weather did not require the use of air conditioners. Our housekeeping staff does an excellent job to ensure that the suites are always free of dust and debris. A previous guest was probably smoking in the room and placed a bag on the smoke detector. It was obviously missed by my staff; the ceiling is not their first priority when they go to clean a room. The black grease marks on the corners of the sheets??? All of our sheets are marked on the corners with permanent marker stating the sheet size, K for king size, Q for queen size, etc. We here at the Tiki Village take great pride in the appearance of our accomodations. Most guests find it quite comfortable and a majority of them are repeat customers, some going back 20 years. The Hilton it isn't, BUT it is a quiet, rustic little place off the main highway with a relaxing back yard and garden which is why we refer to it as Vernon's little oasis.
