Happy customer
My girlfriend and I had a great stay. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The coffee served at breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed the view from the deck. The room could of been a little cleaner there was some hair left in the tub and on one of the beds but nothing to be too bothered by. We had 2 beds so we were able to sleep comfortably in the other.

Skip breakfast, or eat standing up
The location is great. The parking lot is too small and forget about actually being able to have breakfast in the miniscule breakfast area!

Go out for breakfast
The hotel is a little worn out, and the breakfast area is smaller than my own kitchen at home!
