We stayed here for just one night. Very friendly check in. Very helpful and full of info. The room itself was fine. A real lack of bed side plugs for charging s phone etc. I found two in the entire room. It's a must in this day and age. Breakfast was nice. Overall a pleasant stay at a decent price.
