I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was a good size, I fit in the shower, the price was reasonable, breakfast was awesome, the computers and internet worked well, the restaurant in the hotel was a little pricy but the food was really good. The desk staff spoke really good english but the restaurant staff not as well.
