It’s pretty secluded and not in the middle of everything yet everything is close enough to walk to

I like everything about the property, the service is really good, and it's really clean and newly-renovated. The only downside I think is the lack of online streaming services in the TV in the room but honestly it's not a big deal. The location is excellent and what you get for the price is excellent. I highly recommend.
