5/5 Excellent

Everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the owner Mike. Check in was fast and easy and I was shown around the property. Room was clean, good facilitators, they even offer you bikes to use. Great location, walkable to everything in town. Nice bar and restaurant on the main floor, offering good food and drink specials.
