Location is ideal. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very clean. Only thing to mention is that furnishings could be updated a bit. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite, and the living area could do with an extra loveseat. Also, be prepared to do your own dishes - no dishwasher. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay.
