If you’re looking for an inexpensive stay this is your place. No elevator, so you’ll get your exercise carrying your luggage upstairs should you stay on the second floor. Room was clean. Restaurant is only open for breakfast. Breakfast was ok. Staff is very pleasant.

The rooms I have had were courtyard view rooms. The doors opened out to the courtyard, but no sliders.
