A Lovely Stay
Loved this place! Felt so at home and the staff was so helpful. As a single woman traveling alone, I felt perfectly safe and taken care of. They booked transportation to and from the airport for me and helped me with anything else I might be needing. Thoroughly cleaned the room and the bathroom every single day, fresh towels and sheets included. Located on a nice, quiet street that was only about a 5 minute walk from downtown. Highly recommend!
