The room was small and the bathroom was smaller however it was nicely appointed, very clean and the bed was excellent (pillow-top bed). They provide a Reasonably good continental breakfast with great coffee. The staff were very pleasant. We will definitely stay here when we return.

This place is extremely good value and to be completely honest was a lot nicer than we expected given what it cost.
