This hotel is adequate, but not awesome. It's clean, but not perfect. My wife and I consider it a study in contrasts. The rooms and beds are lovely, but the bathrooms desperately need an update. The AC and satellite tv work great, but you get three remotes somewhat awkwardly when you check in. The toilet seat doesn't attach, but there...

It's not the most memorable, but it was comfortable, clean and not expensive. The rooms were small, but it was just fine for us as we were only staying one night in transit. The terrace outside was lovely to hang out while waiting for our ride to the ferry station. The beds were exceptionally comfy.
