When we arrived we were welcomed and helped promptly. There were 2 young men helping us - a group of few rooms. The hotel room was clean, the bedding looked good and feels so soft and cozy, the bed seems comfy!

Firstly, I want to clarify that this is a no-frills hotel so don't expect 5-star accommodations. That said, for the price, this hotel was clean, quiet, and well-appointed complete with free lobby coffee and a fridge in the room. The staff was helpful and friendly and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an inexpensive place to stay.
