Nice place, clean updated older hotel with modern touch. Area is a little interesting so if you want to go into the main town area I'd take an uber. Pool was decent and restaurant was fun. Service was good as well.

Yes. There is no concierge lounge but the front desk provided coupons to use in the restaurant for a complimentary continental breakfast. Pastries yogurt fruit - not bad at all

We didn’t have need of one during our stay. That said, the staff are incredibly helpful and will either direct you or handle getting your items to a dry cleaner if needed.
