Superb 9.0 From 100 reviews

Good 6.0
A place like any other
We were booked into a peculiar attic-like room: lots of floor space but slanting ceilings, with a kitchenette, and a bathroom that fronted the road. After initial fixes to the heater and the outdoor lighting, the room was fine. The management was a little off-putting but not hostile or offensive. There are a lot of similar properties along this stretch, all seemingly identical in style (or lack of same) or amenities. Not entirely sure why this one was rated any higher than the others.
