I'd recommend Paul's. The location was convenient, parking was easy, the front desk was very helpful, the room was comfortable and clean and the beds were good. The attached restaurant produced a good breakfast.
One thing that leapt out at us was the funky decor. We stayed in the courtyard section, which was all wood-panelled with a courtyard open to the sky and lots of plants - a far cry from the typical sterile environments we see in our travels.
I cannot say anything about pools and the like because we never look for that. We typically arrive late, sleep as best we can, and blow out early in the morning. We seldom pay more than $90 US for a room. We paid our customary fare for the room at Paul's, and we got far more than we were expecting. Highly recommended.
