8/10 Very Good

4/10 Fair

We chose this inn based on the location and high score on the reviews of 8.5. We were disappointed for a few reasons. We requested a king bed and got a small queen. The reception was empty, no staff available at any time. It was a very hot week, but the AC dint respond to the temperature selected. It was impossible to go to sleep at night until the music and karaoke finished in the bar area on the lower level (even with the ear plugs on). No comment on the pastries in the coffee area. We did like the location since it was 5 minutes away from our visiting friends. The high score was deceiving in our selection.

6/10 Good

Place does not deserve 8.4 rating. Bedding could be much better. Tub/shower wasn't very clean. Looked like mildew. Bar was fun. Food was ok. Breakfast was bad. Self serve. Rotten orange, beat up apples. 1 yogurt and one oatmeal. Few baked goods. Only bold coffee.
