    The history of this place is worth staying. Small place. Choose the upgrade (the room pictured the most on here). It is lovely. Clean place. Good service. It is up a hill-so maybe not ideal for someone physically challenged. I would stay here again.

    I selected this hotel for our party of four for the New Year's Eve holiday 2014/2015, and was amazed to find how unkempt it was, considering that it (and the Hermosa) were offered as a package by the Chamber of Commerce for the New Year's...More
