My husband and I stayed here from January 21st to the 24th, 2013.
Overall I would recommend this location with a few caveats. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. It's lovely to be greeted by people who seem genuinely glad to have you stay at their place. Our room was clean and functional, including a mini-fridge and other kitchen amenities.
We didn't realize that this place is more of a mini-apartment rather than what you might consider a typical hotel room. We were surprised to learn that if you wanted clean towels daily there would be a surcharge. This surcharge would also apply to soaps, shampoos, lotions,etc. There was an extra daily charge for use of the in-room safe which seemed a bit excessive. The laundry facilities were not functioning during our stay but that was just bad luck for us and I don't think this was the norm.
We were happy to have an easy walk to the main street in town and especially grateful for the loan of an umbrella from the front desk. It was more than a bit drippy during our stay!
While we would recommend this place, I would have been nice to know of the extra charges before our arrival.
