We reserved 2 rooms for 2 days in early July (the busy season). Our travel plans got us in early and we tried to check-in at 12:00pm (check-in is 4pm). They tried to accomodate us, but due to the busy season no rooms were available. However, the desk clerk indicated if we went to lunch we could call after and see if something opened up. We tried again at 1:30pm and they were able to get us into one of our rooms early. The second room was available shortly thereafter. The Hotel itself is very small and compact. However the rooms were fairly spacious and well laid out. The shower was odd as there were no shower curtins or doors. If you were not careful the water got all over the floor. The rooms were clean for the most part, but could use some high dusting as the ceiling fan was pretty dirty. The complimentary breakfast had the usual pastries, yogurt, cereal, but also had a small assortment of hot items each day. The breakfast are was well kept and spotless. The pool are was in the center of the hotel courtyard and was surounded by the rooms. This setup caused sound to amplify and travel into the rooms. This is fine during the day, but I did not like being woken up at 10pm (the time the pool was supposed to be closed) by screaming children. I blame the parents more than the management. Managment did close the pool shortly thereafter. Our room keys operated sporadicaly and we were sometimes locked out of our room. All and all this is a nice little hotel...couple of small issues but overall I would stay here again.
