I stayed for one night during a weekend Orthodox singles event on September 3, 2011. The entire hotel had a rank smell, and was in terrible repair. It felt more like a minimum-security prison, or possibly a mental hospital.
The food was greasy, heavy, and the desserts were laden with sugar. To make matters worse, the dining room area was swarming with black flies, both small and large. My table got lucky in that all the flies we encountered were still alive and kicking.
When I attempted to enter the synagogue area Saturday night for Maariv prayers, a rude person pulled me aside by the arm with force, and instructed me to join a smaller minyan outside the main shul. This was a very disturbing event indeed, and is probably the nail in the coffin for any chance of my ever returning to this facility.
Unique Quality: Despite all the negatives, the hotel actually did have a bit of nostalgic 1950s charm to it. It's possible to walk around the place and imagine what it would have been like to vacation there 40-50 years ago when the likes of Muhammed Ali trained at this facility.
However, once this daydream wears off, the primary emotion the hotel evokes is depression, with its aging structure and amenities, and impoverished surroundings.
