    Discovery is off the busy center just enough to avoid the stress. Library is next door. Helpful staff, standard but comfortable rooms. No computers; the office will print your boarding pass. No elevators to 2nd floor. Other than the stairs, we enjoyed our stay.

    Good location on the outer edge of town. You should have a car, but honestly, you will want a car to tour the island anyway. Never had a problem parking in town. Staff friendly. We stayed on the third floor, no problems.
