It's important to understand what this hotel is as their website and description over the phone isn't quite what you'll get. A few definitions:
Kitchenette means microwave and mini-fridge. This was offset by the fact that the main kitchen is fully appointed - we grabbed some utensils and plates to bring to the room.
Hot tub means small hot tub at the back of the building. No room comes with a hot tub.
Room photos on show the bed area of the room, the rest are common areas in the hotel.
Parking space means the parking lot at the back of the building - a bit of a free for all. No parking pass required, we assumed the other cars back there were guests. A good part of the lot was blocked off when we were there, after returning from dinner we (and obviously subsequent guests) had to be creative with parking spaces.
Our room was groovy and had an exterior entrance - good for the dog. The ceiling fan looked to be in danger of falling out of the ceiling. Room was reasonably clean but under bed and top of cabinets dirty - not standards you would see in a three star or higher hotel. Great location - close to the plaza and close to a park for walking. Staff is helpful but vibe is VERY much self service.
Last but not least is value - room rate was quite good but once all the fees are added in (the resort fee is a joke!) you will pay as much as some very nice places near the plaza with upscale hotel service. Conclusion: wouldn't even be writing this review if price had been significantly less than competition around town and if what was represented was what we got. With the option to pay the same and get true resort style amenities hard to advocate for a stay here.
