Although the hotel website still shows $35 for a single, their new price sheet in the lobby shows $45. Be forewarned that it is not the bargain it has been in the past. However, it still is a nice place in general.
Good: Quiet if you stay in one of the courtyard rooms. Excellent quality mattresses. Rooms kept clean. Convenient location for getting almost anywhere worth going in town.
Problems: Water flow in shower is barely a trickle--not enough to even start the electrical heating unit that is attached. The a/c units tend to blow directly onto the sleepers. Breakfast is very basic--bread, a pat of butter, and coffee (and most, but not all, mornings a very small bit of jam).
