Planning a vacation trip to the Tuna Capital? Have you decided upon the one important detail as to where you’ll be staying? If not, I have some suggestions that you might want to check. Let me share with you some things to consider though before you proceed to my list. Price is typically the main determining factor in selecting a hotel however you also need to consider other items depending on the nature or purpose of the trip and who you’re with. Things to consider in selecting your hotel include location, parking, extra fees, the rating or the number of stars, onsite facilities, complimentary breakfast, family-friendliness, pet-friendliness, reliability versus local flavor, and of course review just to get a feel for what you can expect.

So on with the list in no particular order:
