We drive into Roma just on dusk. We chose the van park just north of the town. The one with portable traffic light controlled road work section at its gates which causes every passing semi-trailer to stop and start at.

We stayed here on our way through Roma and had a great time, our room had a queen size bed, flat screen TV, WiFi and was well appointed, there's even a small pool if you need a cooling dip.

Overall it was a great place to stay whilst in Roma and we left feeling refreshed.
