Average. Decent for a quick overnight stay
It's pretty dated and the room had a strange layout. Front door opening into the bathroom area, no partition between bathroom area and the rest of the room etc. It's definitely a no frills place, but fine for what we were looking for. It does have a nice view from the front porch area though
