The tag line for this place should be " we try harder" they really try to think of everything, and make up for the lack of slick amenities. If you are on business this is probably not your best choice, but for leisure it's just right for the "No chain Hotel" minded people. The rooms are spartan, but very clean, a little too white for my taste. ( See our photos) Small rooms, TV tucked into a corner, bath small as well. The type of place with the in wall A/C units. Beds were in good shape, Quiet, we slept well. No phones, the "wake up call" is a buzzer they give you. At 7:00 am the water in the shower was luke warm, but it improved. They offer to guests laptop use, iron & board,hair dryers, maps, print boarding pass etc. The continental breakfast is industrial, with bananas. Small patio with newspapers included. The place has it's charm and is a lot less cost than the surrounding places, so for a couple days it's fine.
