A place to be
It is a perfect place to be. My sister and I were there for 2 days and we were taken care of very nicely. Fabulous friendly staff, beautiful room with a balcony and an amazing view. Bus stop is right there. Uber is fantastic. Its a place right out of old Julia Roberts movie...dreamy.

Nice affordable hotel.
Overall.. nice hotel at affordable price. We got a room with balcony. Unfortunately the shower was broken and the maintenance guys repaired it promptly. The hotel itself is centrally located.
