Note to self in the future: check for air conditioning. The rooms are small, but that's fine...they're clean, the bathroom is new and the beds are well made each day.
There's no air conditioning, however, which means the room gets quite stuffy unless you open the window. That would be fine, except it then becomes difficult to sleep as the surrounding noise will keep you awake. Add to that, if the windows are open, the blinds tend to flap back and forth, banging against the wall. This kept me awake , despite attempts to wedge a lamp against the blind to minimise flapping. All in all, four nights of very average sleep.
Reception was friendly, however and as a note: the laundry machines cost $3 each per cycle...no signs to indicate this.
