The hotel is fine if you are going to stay just for a night after attending an event in the area, other than that I would suggest another hotel. I have stayed in older hotels with smaller rooms and it has not bothered me but this one was just not comfortable. We actually chose to drive 5 hours back hom after a wedding reception we attended instead of staying the extra night because we would get a better nights sleep. The night staff was friendly a somewhat helpful but the day staff was not very helpful at all and on the verge of being rude.
The room was not overly small but its layout was weird and we just never felt comfortable. Maybe it just was not our style. It how ever liek the rest of the hotel was clean. The best part of the hotel was the restaurant next door, Ceviche.
