Guest Recommendations
"The rooms were very small,but I guess most of them are in this area. They went above and beyond our expectations. We checked out in the morning and had an evening flight, so they locked all our luggage up for the day in storage. Anything we asked for they accomidated. We were very pleased with them and the area."
