          Does this hotel have washing machines on site for guests to do laundry?

          Response from LucaDo996 | Reviewed this property |
          No they do not, or least they didn't when I was there in Oct 2016. I emailed them prior to our departure & they responded very quickly. I believe they do have a laundry service but these are not self service coin machines.
