Comfortable Rooms

The rooms are like what you would find in a motel.

There is no need to bring towels or bedding. You should bring your own shampoo and toiletries, however. The rooms have heating and air conditioning, WiFi, and private baths.

Bring a layer of warm clothes because it may get chilly in the mornings and evenings.
