This hotel has great value for the location, view, and breakfast buffet. Plus, the front desk staff were super helpful with recommending hikes, bike rentals, and busses. The view from breakfast alone is worth it, plus they have a make-your-own omelet bar! Highly recommended.

The view from the room is great, really. But the hotel themselves does not seem to be managed with love. There is no heart and spirit inside. The room is ok but the bed was dirty and the toilet smelled very strong. The staff members...More
