          Not the cheapest option but it was great to have an immaculately clean room with crisp sheets and comfy beds. Breakfast was not included in our rate but $5 was good value for fruit coffee eggs and toast. Juana was very accommodating.

          Hi... I'm wondering whether the rooms have toiletries and maybe a hair dryer? I'm trying to pack light and wont pack soap/shampoo if I don't have to. Thanks!

          No hair dryer, there were tiny bottles of shampoo and conditioner (not replenished) and we had to furnish our own soap. Brian
