It's at 11 just make sure you don't get room 119 we had that room the last two times and the fridge does not work. We told the manager/owner after the first time we visit every six to eight weeks and was surprised to get the same room and the fridge still not working. Everything else was great we bring are own food do we don't have the breakfast at the hotel which is very basic we didn't care for the Big Sir Cafe but the Mexican restaurant two doors away was very good
