They have a very nice staff and comfortable beds. Great location and close to good eats and drinks. There were only two things we didn't like. Thin walls and stinky tap water. We had a good time :)

First of all I didn’t like that I was getting calls from when I was going to check it, and way overpriced for a small room and the ceiling fan sounded like if it was going to come off the roof.
