Nice and clean, but poor WIFI connection. Very bad breakfast choice - technically no breakfast unless you call breakfast banana plus milk.

Awful "breakfast." Coffee watery, terrible packaged snack food. They were more concerned with telling me their rules than they were about making sure I had a good stay.
