This is an older property, but well-loved and cared for. The owner lives on site, and obviously takes great pride in her establishment. The rooms are clean, well-maintained, and the bed was nice. Carpets appeared to be newish, and clean as well. We asked about a taxi, owner advised there was only one, and sometimes unreliable. She offered use of the bikes she keeps for customers, but we were planning on drinking, so we declined. She gave us the taxi's number, and then wrote her name and cell phone number on the back, said if we got ready to come back and the taxi driver wouldn't answer, or took too long, to call her, she'd come get us! Now that, my friends, is customer service! There were some construction workers who were staying there long term, and from our conversation with them, this lady does not put up with any shenanigans at her place!
