Enjoyed our stay at this quiet little 8 room hotel. Room was small but met our needs. Spacious courtyard was nice to sit and relax. Breakfast was not spectacular but filling. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Would stay there again.

Hi - I think the check-in time is pretty flexible depending on how full the hotel is at your arrival time. The check-out time is 11 am. And yes, they are very nice about holding luggage for you.
