          The only thing I didn't like is chairs. It was a little bit uncomfortable when I tried to do some tasks on my laptop. Please, make it higher! Everything else is excellent, nice rooms (exactly as on their photos) and friendly stuff.

          Service was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. We had cocktails beside the pool even though it was cool out. There is a great liquior store within walking distance. It is a quick drive to a Safeway.
