The hotel is located just across from the central square. It is close to the airport, so the cab fare ran us around 8$. It was great to be able to sit in the square and people watch. The base room was very simple with older furnishings and clean, with the exception of the bathroom. This could of used a bit more elbow grease in the cleaning department. This is a good hotel for this price point.
The breakfast consisted of one pancake, a glass of juice and coffee. Not enough food to start the day with, so we had to go out for an additonal breakfast.
What moves this hotel from an average rating to a great rating for us, is the family that runs it, they really are wonderful. Vito, is quite a character and quite engaging. The son who checked us in and all the staff (most were family) were incredibly helpful with everything asked.
