Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel itself could do with an update. The room was big enough but dark. Couldn't leave the curtains open as other guests could have looked inside our room. Location is a bit far out of town, but a taxi or a bus which the bus stop is close by doesn't cost much. Good plus...

This place was right off the highway so difficult to get to other places. We were able to go on back roads to get around. It looks like an old fashioned motel. Did not want to be on first floor being women traveling alone, but there were no elevators. Breakfast was available and decent considering how small the area. We...
