4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The accommodations were comfortable and clean. Location is a bit inconvenient without a car as there is no taxi/uber service available. The Intercity bus driver was kind enough to take us directly to the property, and the manager did provide a ride to the bus stop in the morning, but I don't think you can count on this being the case all the time. We only stayed one night, so our experience was limited.

The view from the parking lot is incredible. Nice spot. The only problem was the restaurant wasn't open but there's plenty to choose from close by..
