Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
Downtown’s most popular budget hotel is run by a welcoming elderly couple. The no-frills rooms have linoleum floors and small bathrooms.
If you want a quiet night, request a room at the back.
Spirited, fun-loving guests adore this redesigned 1946 hotel.
A mid-range haunt for hip locals who come for the Olympic-sized swimming pool, rockabilly shows, and regular pool parties.
