2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Room comfort
It is not a hotel !!!!!!!
It is not a hotel , it is more like someone’s house. I was the only person staying there with housekeepers ( couple with a child ) They were very nice, cooked me great breakfast !!! No locks for your room. Security was a small dog who barked sometimes. There is no free shuttle service, you will end up paying $70.00 both ways... directly or indirectly !!! I was scared at times, as all lights were off at night, only the street light was on, witch was some help.
