Very, very friendly staff. I had dinner at the hotel that was delicious. Breakfast the next day was decent as well.
Room was comfortable though some of the furnishings are getting older.
Very quiet location, close to grape vines.
The hotel was kind of hard for the taxi to find which was surprising because it really wasn't far from train station (20min maybe) so make sure you print out directions to hotel to aid taxi drivers with bad attitudes
