    The room was spacious and clean. Clean bathroom. Good staff attitude and best service ever. Now lets go down stairs at the Thirty Ate. Loved the breakfast. Good O'l fashion from ur menu. Love the fact that ur situated right in town. Everything is a walk away. Enjoyed our stay in ur hotel.

    The fact that we couldn'tsee the city view from our room window because we had a room situated inside with no outside view of the town.
