The hotel was pleasant and the staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms were large, well furnished and clean. The Breakfast Buffet was pretty good for a quick bite. They had yogurt, cereal, eggs, bacon and sausage. The cinnamon buns were hot and tasty

Breakfast is very good. Maria is a wonderful person that is taking care of all the customer there. Rooms are wide and open and is very well locate. I used it for long time now and the only thing I found this time was the rate for me was very high.
