  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Good value for money.

The hotel was simple and not very close to downtown but it was clean and affordable.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Friendly and helpful staff. They allowed me keep my bike in my room. Only downside, and not of their control, there were no eating establishments in the vicinity. As a cyclist and walker, it would take close to an hour to get a decent meal - ok if one were driving!

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

The room condition is not good at all. The pictures show nice well maintained rooms, but the one we got was not like this at all.
