“Clean, welcoming, and perfectly adequate.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Sure, this is no place for a romantic weekend break with your partner.
However, this is a good place to sleep for the night, in a clean, comfortable, and remarkably peaceful setting.
As long as you understand the offering.... this place is a great find.
We will use again.
