Old world Spanish styleOur room had such great character. It was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and I loved the breakfast and glass of wine offered in the afternoon. The only thing I would have desired was a bigger parking lot. I like to park away from cars to prevent door dings and the lot was small ...

Lovely innShower is Room 7 is very dangerous: neither water temperature nor pressure could be regulated; would be very easy to be seriously scalded. Was the only drawback to a lovely inn.

Close to town and the price is rightThis place has seen better days. The carpet was ripped, the room didn't smell fresh and there were ants all over the air conditioner and crawling on the floor nearby. It was okay for the price and location but a little maintenance and updating would make it a much better place to stay.
