To be fair, we were in the hotel for such a short time we didn't get time to look around much apart from our room so this review is just based on our room not the hotel in general. We arrived late, the reception person...More

I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
