The place is quiet, clean, and well laid out. Rooms are, unfortunately, rather dark and the lighting is not good. Staff is helpful and friendly. Grab-and-go breakfast forgettable, but there's something for (almost) everyone. Coffee is good. We are DELIGHTED to find a place that let us bring our dog! Yes, we had to pay extra, but it was worth it to have him with us. The place and the surrounding area feel quite safe. I would not hesitate to come here as a solo woman. I saw families of different ethnicities checking in, and think they should also have felt quite safe.

We pick this since breakfast was included. No breakfast was offered. Just a cup of coffee and yogurt. Don’t show breakfast on website if it’s not available
