Great value, nice room with decent beds. Only downside was that the parking is basically a free-for-all. We couldn't park outside our room as there were already cars there. Would definitely recommend though, nothing wrong with the room itself and we came away pretty happy with the overall experience. Check-in was very easy and the lady was extremely helpful/nice.
