Like most of the hotels in this area, the rooms are small. Not uncomfortable; just not very spacious. The bed was comfy. The one puzzling thing about this place that is mentioned in other reviews is that there are no microwaves in the room (and none were available by request) and no fridges (although we did request and receive one).
