    a great climber motel

    We had a great experience and had a good rest at the hotel that bought us energy back for the next day hiking. We hope the kitchen area could be bigger. One of the family occupied almost everything before us, thus we did not have chance to enjoy making the food.

    Adequate backpacker motel

    Clean room, nice showers. Our room was a little noisy, but I think that is because we were right next to the kitchen.
