    Great accommodation, which has so much more character than a hotel. We shared a two bedroom apartment, which was clean and very spacious. The motel is also located in an awesome area, close to lots of restaurants.

    You can use uber to get around. The BB is closer to some great restaurants. I was there only for a night and didn't look for a shopping mall or groceries.

    Is there 24 hour check-in? Because we might not arrive until 1am or 2am.

    Yes they are very accommodating. Just tell them when you book and I'm sure they will be able to arrange for you.

    Is there air conditioning? I would be coming in December and I think it can be very warm then.
