The rooms were clean. The stuff was super friendly. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Everything was local and close enough to enjoy. I would recommend this hotel to others. If you book at least a week in advance, they will give you a nice discount.

You can also call the hotel. I know they have a shuttle if you reserve in advance to the airport, and I'm pretty sure it's free.
