Cheap and no frills. Compact room, perfect if backpacking solo. Decent breakfast spread offered to start the day. Within quick walking distance of shopping district and places of interest, restaurants, and bars. Would stay again.

Not a bad place for a few nights stay. Do not eat the breakfast unless included in your stay ad it is way overpriced for what you get.

Liked: Cleanliness
Excellent location by the harbor and downtown. It may not have all the amenities of a more expensive hotel, but if you just need a place to stay the night, it is a great place to stay. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars close by.
