The front desk clerk at check in; Julie, was the most gracious and hospitable person you could ever hope to find. She went out of her way and above and beyond her scope of duties to provide me with information that I requested from her. A very pleasant and customer service oriented person.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 October 2016

We really enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and breakfast was good. Johnny and Alexis at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. We needed directions to the olive tree farm and they printed out the directions for us. They made our stay a good experience. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Just an overnight stay to visit our son. Comfortable rooms/beds, friendly staff. Very convenient to all activities. Next door to Fuego which is very tasty and open 2 hours. Good experience, will be back again.

This hotel placed us in a smoking room without telling us. I have a 6 month old baby so when we got up there I could not bring him in. We asked for another room but they were booked and refused to refund us because we used a third party site. I understand that hotels have contracts with these site...

I'd made a reservation for this hotel online. Check-in was smooth, although the front desk clerk was not overly friendly or welcoming, in my opinion. Our room was clean. The king- sized bed was comfortable. Heat/air conditioning unit worked well. Our room had a mini- fridge and microwave oven, iron, ironing board, coffee maker, and hair dryer. Breakfast was nice-...

This hotel is just average. Bed was comfortable, room was okay. Plan on eating elsewhere for breakfast! Location was good for us. A lot of places to eat nearby. Staff was friendly and accommodating. One thing that bothered me was that upon entering the hotel, there was a very strong smell of bleach. I saw the cleaning people cleaning, but...

A little outdated. There is no elevator. Overall pretty good hotel. For a quick stop through, it's decent. I didn't eat breakfast but it looked good. My husband has stayed there a few times and he said the area can be a little sketchy. I didn't mind b/c we were in the room the whole time.

Great location to local restaurants and shopping. Staff was friendly. My only complaint for this location is that the mattress could be more comfortable. We have stayed at other BW locations who offer a better bed.
