Perfect place for when you do not require space. If all you need is a bed with all the normal attributes of hotel/motel then this is the perfect place. Situated at walking distance from all central activities.

This just pays the first part of your room. You won’t get it back but it comes off the price when you arrive.

Please note that while I can't comment on a shuttle service, the train station is not walking distance (about a 25 min walk) nor is it on an easy bus route. Your best bet is a taxi or Uber.
