Very Good 8.0
Minor problems but intend to come back!
Place was HARD to find. Would have helped a lot to know "look for the huge Harvey Burger sign, we're next door" because the Puffin sign was a postage stamp. There was a bad sewage odor that came and went randomly. Otherwise, the room was quite nice for the price and the location was excellent. Intend to stay here again on next trip!
