Really difficult to assess this hotel as we were charged two drastically different rates for midweek and weekend. the difference was three times. That made the weekday rate very cheap and good value, but for the weekend rate it falls WAY short!
On the positive side it's easily found, central to the main drag and out the way enough to avoid much main strip late night noise, but still close and handy to get in to local eateries, shops etc. The room had a safe box, the first we encountered on this road trip, so we felt important belongings and documents were safe. The hotel promotes good green policies and supports them well. There's a cheap, efficient laundry on site, which was a nice change from wet items hanging over the shower cubicle each night! There's also a good fridge and freezer in the room.
Less attractive was the construction of the building itself, being very creaky with thin walls, and it seems that many of the lower rate rooms have interconnecting doors. Luckily the room next to us was vacant for two nights but the third made up for it! The rooms form a quadrangle around the parking area which is quite insufficient for all cars so you're best off arriving early. The breakfast was plain nasty - just doughy gunk which was quite unrecognisable to us. Finally, don't expect to find a lot of tourist info in reception. There isn't any.
