The room was a nice size. Looked like it had been remodeled. Same for the bathroom. It had 2 sinks. One inside the bathroom and one just outside of it. Several restaurants within walking distance. Downtown is just a few minutes drive. Hotel had a good breakfast and nice laundry facility. Cute town. Enjoyed my stay.
