Our room was the first in line and we own an F150 so were worried about blocking the driveway for people, yet used our common sense and parked on empty block just outside our room👍

Friendly staff, clean, huge comfy bed. Only negative was the shower had a curtain, which swings in and attacks you, like all shower curtains do

Thankyou for the nice comments while I understand didn't like the shower curtain, the ones we use have metal bases to reduce the swing and allows more room to move around.

Nice cosy and comfortable room. However, looking into the courtyard and sitting outside was a little stark.
