I stayed here for two nights. Both nights were very pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is located about 10 minutes from town, and right next to the tourist center and a national park. I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean and spacious, and I felt very safe. I would definitely stay there again.
