Accommodations are dorm-like. Spartan but clean. Friendly staff. The views from the room are incredible. Kids loved the stairs and second story in each room. There is also a play area in the lobby for kids.

Bare Bones, Unfriendly Check In
As others have stated this is a school dorm used as a “hotel” in the summer. Good concept, but have low expectations so as not to be disappointed. Literally, 2 beds, 2 beside tables, a desk and tiny bathroom. If you’re planning on sleeping and leaving first thing it will meet your needs. I wouldn’t spend any more time there. The check-in clerk was unfriendly and uninterested. He clearly wanted to be anywhere but at the front desk. Not a great first impression.
