We made our booking online, and when we arrived we had to wait 15 minutes to check in, because the receptionist keeps everything in a hand written log....
Rooms are basic but clean, but there is no door between the bathroom/toilet and the rest of the room. The walls are paper thin so we could hear the tv playing in the room next to ours.
There is nothing much nearby to do. This hotel serves more as a roadside stop, to continue you journey the next day.
The breakfast is very tiny. Coffee, bad orange juice and wrapped cinnamon rolls.
There is a safeway nearby where you can go for actual breakfast.
Also, the 'promised' Wi-Fi is only promised in the lobby. At our room, the signal was unexisting.
