We were initially aiming to check in at another hotel but since it was already fully booked, they referred us instead to Alfonso's which was nearby. The staff were friendly. We had a choice of getting a deluxe room or a junior suite. We opted for the deluxe room as it was a bit cheaper.
The room we were in was spacious enough. The room was simply furnished but very clean. there was a TV stand, bed stand, a surface to place your things/bags in. The twin beds however were narrow, maybe about 24 inches across. Since we were three in our party, we asked for an extra bed. Of course, we paid extra too. Turns out, it was not a bed, just a mattress. No toiletries were provided. Towels of course, were provided but they smelled kinda funny. Not stinky, but funny. I don't think Alfonso's have a great view of the lake as it's on the wrong side of the ridge. But the room we had had a nice view: rolling hills and houses on the distance.
The free breakfast that came with the stay consisted of what I call konti-nental breakfast. 2 pieces of bread, jam, butter and coffee. you can order a more filling breakfast, but you will have to pay more.
It's an ok hotel for me. But what I hated the most is that the windows/outlet for the bathrooms are open to the hallways. so if you fart while taking a leak, anyone can hear. if you make loud, stinky poo, good luck to you. not that I did that during my stay. lol! and another thing I hated was that there was no wifi in the rooms. you had to go down to the cafe for decent wifi.
