    This place was unique, where you can feel relaxed and comfy even surrounded by people you don't know. TJ at the front desk made the whole stay perfect, and the cafeteria guys were just perfect. All good with this place!

    For budget accomodation, it does the trick. Warm bedding and room, warm shower and bathroom space. I didn't have a need for the kitchen or bar or cafe or tour booth or pool and spa or shuttle bus but i thought they were great offerings.
