We stayed for 2 nights in mid November and was very satisfied with our stay. The hotel is right in town and several restaurants, sodas and bars are right around the corner. The rooms were nothing fancy, but clean and well maintained. The front desk manager was very friendly and helpful. The rate was very reasonable and included breakfast; the breakfast was pretty plain but came with a plate of fresh fruit which was appreciated.
A couple of drawbacks...there's no safe in the room and the shower leaked all over the bathroom floor. Also the hotel is located along a main road with a lot of truck traffic and it was quite noisy at times, in particular the early morning. So if you're a light sleeper you may want to consider something outside of town. And while the hotel and bar has a restaurant, it was closed due to low season; the kitchen opened only for breakfast. But it wasn't an issue as there are plenty of restaurants in town to choose from.
Overall the hotel was very good value for money, and I would recommend it.
