A room with a view
The bed was so comfortable. The room was spacious and clean. Our room had a balcony with a Mountain View. The room was dark enough to keep sleeping if you wanted to. Great places nearby to eat breakfast and dinner.

Great time
Clean and peaceful! The breakfast was great! Lots of selection. The biscuit and egg sandwich was delish. Comfy bed, sunk right into it and slept the night away. Would stay here again. And again. And again.

Very Pleased
Very nice renovated hotel. Rooms were comfortable and we had a balcony with a view of the surrounding hills. We reheated the grab and go breakfast in the rooms' microwave and ate at the table on the balcony. Hotel is within easy driving distance of the center of town. I would recommend and would stay there again.

If you need an elevator stay on the first floor
The hotel it self is nice and clean. I stayed 2 nights. My room was not cleaned even though I had the service room Sign outside. Not too big a deal since it was only me staying the first night. The bed was comfortable but the sheets kept coming off in the middle of the night leaving me with a big lump under my head area. The elevators were not working too great. There are signs I. The elevators saying they have not been serviced due to Covid with instructions on how to restart the elevator if it got stuck... which it did. Also 3 times the elevators just didn’t show up after about 10 minutes. Not a big deal to walk the 4 flights of stairs but I wasn’t too happy when I had to do that upon check out carrying my 3 bags. I mentioned this when I was walking out and the front desk clerk was less than receptive. Free wi fi and parking are a plus. The free breakfast isn’t too great with the whole Covid but they did have yummy individually wrapped muffins that were locally made. I appreciated that. Overall a nice clean place to stay. Nice pictures of local scenery.

Consider La Cuestra for you comfort
The room was a magical experience though to much to my chagrin, the elevators had concerning signage that suggested potential failure. The staff was very pleasant though due to covid the continental breakfast was in to go bags and limited.

Very impressed with this hotel. Modern looking and clean. Was very comfortable. Our only complaint was the air conditioning unit was very loud and had a hard time keeping the room cool. When we told the desk upon leaving they were very grateful for the info. Breakfast was good considering COVID. We would definitely stay here again.

Very clean, good sized room, comfortable bed and sheets. Have stayed at places that charged twice as much that were not as good.
