pretty good hotel. booked a junior suite. nothing really special, if it wasn't for the rate I probably would just booked a regular room. feel of the room was country style with wooden ceiling beams and a sky light.
room was clean.
I booked this hotel because 1) great rate and 2) I wanted a place with free parking
pros: good location - near the train station. didn't use the public transport so cannot comment.
cons: staff not well mannered. I waited 1/2 hour for staff to come out to help move vehicles to make room for my rental. there were a number of cars parked in two spots. this was the most serious event.
My recommendation is based on the following:
if the rate is good (decision is heavily based on this), I would say go for it. met the real basic needs. there were many restaurants around so it was pretty good. there were also a number of car rental agencies and public car park (there was one night that there weren't any spaces left in the hotel lot). walking distance to the shopping area.
