Pros- friendly staff, modern, clean & comfortable mattress. Cons- room was small for the price, paying for location I suppose, bed frames legs are toe killers. If you have problems with stairs, don’t get a room on the second floor, no elevator. For the price of the room, breakfast should be included.

Enjoyed our stay very much, but found the bathroom very lacking in space. It was a little bigger than cruise ship size. No racks to hang towels and pedestal sink was so small there was no place to put our toiletries we had to place them on the floor.
