This is somewhere between a best western and hampton inn. The room is simple and clean. Very drafty in the winter, so beware that the wall heater keeps the upper half of the room warm, but the lower half is cold from the air coming in under the door. The sheets are the thinnest I have ever seen. You can actually see the striped matress through the bottom sheet. However, they do appear to be clean. The people at reception are friendly enough, but some are argumentative at times. There is no elevator. Couldn't use the heater in the bathroom because it tripped the breaker and lost all the power to the room. Called reception and was told to go out to the breaker box in the stairwell and flip the breaker myself, which I did. The Ramon crater itself is spectacular as is the wildlife. If you are here on Friday through Saturday it can be difficult to find a decent restaurant that is open. On Shabbat, the only place to get expresso coffee and cappucino is at the gas station, which we did and brought it back to the hotel. Beware that the restaurant prices are very expensive, as are the hotels, including this one, for what you get.
