My friend and I (mid 20's) decided to stay here instead of one of the hostels nearby. We were very impressed with the lobby and the rooms; we opted for the $40 a night room with the private bathroom and it was nice and very clean. The beds were made and new towels were given each day, which was nice, and the people at the desk were very helpful with things to do in the area.
My only complaints:
1) There were a lot of rules here, and I didn't appreciate the few times they were pointed out to us; they were not explained in the beginning and when the owners saw us breaking them they chastised us and made us feel like children doing something we shouldn't be doing. The woman owner was quite nice, but her husband was not very friendly and only spoke to us when he was chastising us about their many rules.
2) The window in the shower is just mesh wire with half of it covered, but when you are showering the covered part doesn't quite go high enough and we both felt very uncomfortable showering since people could definitely see us showering if they looked at the right moment.
Overall, however, it was a nice hotel and worth the price. Good location too, off the main street so you could get some sleep at night.
