My family and I loved the rambler, we will definitely be back some day. I loved the bright colors and groovy feel of the hotel. Most importantly it was clean and no funky smell. They have a little delicious cafe that offers an amazing discount if staying at the hotel. My family and I enjoyed eating breakfast there. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating.
