This hotel is a convenient place to stay and easy to get to local sites from here. There is a strip mall across the street with a restaurant, post office and grocery store. There is nothing exceptional about it though, except the nice staff. My room was upgraded (which was a lovely gesture) but it was noisy both outside and... More

This review is really 2-1/2 out of 5 but I had to round so decided to be generous. I stayed at the Amarano once several years ago and loved it. But it's gone into some serious disrepair since then.
