Maybe some people would go for this but the room was really dated, to about the 1930s-1940s. I don't really watch TV but it was a bit disconcerting to see an old CRT in the bedroom. Remember those? Deeper than they are wide.
Overall it was quite clean but the bed covers and decorative pillows looked about 30 years old.
Staff very friendly
Very conviently located in town
Restaurant was great and waitresses were really nice
Bathroom had been recently redone
A bit dated - room just felt worn out
A bit expensive for what you got
I had a semi-submerged room with a single window about a foot and a half high, which made the place quite dark, and everyone walking past could look straight down and in unless I kept the curtains closed.
What's the deal with tipping for your room to be cleaned? When I went to pay they said they gave me the terminal and they said I had the options of paying service to the room maids. The options were something like $20, $30 or $40 for a two-day stay! What? I thought when you pay for a hotel it includes the room being clean? What next? Do I have to tip for a towel or for soap? Really confused by this as I've never seen it before and I travel quite a lot.
