    Great place to stay for a night or two. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, nice complimentary breakfast. The room has pretty much everything you need, mini fridge, microwave, tv etc. The pool was a nice extra amenity too.

    I agree with WowPeter. However, I've called or e-mailed the hotel and asked for early arrival and they always arrange for it..........so, do that.
