  • We are a family of four - two adults and two teenagers. Are we able to reserve one room with sleeping accommodations for four? Our preference would be one queen bed and two double beds. Also, what’s the typical cost for a taxi ride into town? Is it more practical to rent a car for flexibility?
    Several rooms ahve a queen or king sized bed plus a single bed, plus we can add a small floor level sofabed. Or, suggest two rooms for more comfort. The taxi to town is $7 and takes 12-15 mins. There are no car rentals. Contact hotel for best offers.
