          Greetings: There are a couple of parking spots in the front of the hotel... not sure if there any in the back of the building. The manageress is very helpful - I'm sure she would be willing to help you find a spot.

          Parking is free but restricted. There is only room for maximal 3 cars. One place is for the landlady, leaving room for the 3 other cars.
