Room is surprisingly small that you don’t have enough room to walk after putting the luggages. It it not family friendly especially you have kids who need the crib. We requested the crib and hotel said yes they can provide. But when arriving, front desk lady told us your room cannot even put a crib due to space limit. We could not imagine how tiny it is until we saw it. It really does not have space to put a crib at all! The design and structure of building is weird. All the rooms are located at the four corners while elevator and hallway are in the middle. The whole building is thin and tall- like a pencil. Two stars overall- One star is for front desk lady who is helpful and help accommodate to change room. Another star is for free breakfast.

A great location that is walking distance from shopping and restaurants. The Hui car rental lot is also close by. They provide breakfast and it has a decent selection. They have a balcony and pool with a small Minigolf and chess set on the third floor with a laundry room. The washers and dryers were a little pricey costing almost $5.00 a load in the washer and another $4.74 for the dryer. The room we got was small, but was only for two. The view was great from the window and the 3rd floor balcony area. The elevators are very slow and the layout is unusual using the elevator due to the way the building is designed. Not a deal breaker, but it did take a little extra time. If you rent a car and park at the hotel, then it is expensive. I would not recommend renting a car and parking it. The by the hour car rentals nearby are cheaper with gas included or you can always take a bus/trolley if you buy the ticket. The lower review is mainly due to the difficulty with the elevators. You could wait 10 minutes on an elevator.
