The views from this hotel are phenominal. It sits nearly at the top of Pico Blanco. However, when I made my reservation, I told them I needed a room on the first floor due to a handicap problem I have. When I checked in, I reconfirmed this and they said I only had to walk up one stair. Well, the meant one staircase, which I would not do. The gave me a room on the first floor that they were in the process of cleaning. While the room was basically clean, the furniture had holes in in, as did the bed covering. The rooms were not air conditioned and I had to ask for a fan. There was no cross breeze. I should have realized, but this hotel is up on a mountain in a rural area. So, all day long and most of the night, you hear roosters, cows and dogs.
They do not include breakfast, so you have to buy it, and, they have some pretty high charges compared to other places. They do offer free Internet, but it is only in the lobby area. The staff was certainly decent and helpful, but only a couple of them spoke limited English.
