Backpackers Love this place, and if you want to rub elbows with them, and get your laundry done, this is the place, staff seemed to all be that age as well. We enjoyed the private Hot tub after a cold day exploriing in the rain, but we arrived very early and I suspect that if we hadn't we wouldn't have been able to reserve it. Food at the restaraunt was really good, well cooked and served with a smile. Our room was TINY! Comfortable enough, though the bathroom sink was about the size of a dinner plate.. worked out Ok, but not really convenient. Our biggest complaint was that the cleaning staff, though they could see us working through the glass door, still knocked twice before our departure to see when we would be checking out! An hour before checkout at 9:00 and again at 9:45...REALLY made me angry. It's supposed to be MY room til checkout! I would not return for that reason alonel.
