As we walked in to check in, I was skeptical. Once we got to the room, I cried. The room smelled, the carpet was disgusting.... The bathroom was unsightly and the electrical outlets came out of the wall when I tried to charge my phone. The bed felt as if it were broken and the pillows were tiny. The exit... More

This is an older hotel that is family owned. We had some issues with repairs that needed to be made in our room which was very frustrating and disappointing but I must give credit to an excellent manager that made things right. The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to plenty of good restaurants and it is clean.... More

After reading this review, I immediately went to the lobby to check out the duct tape job on the flat screen, but was relieved to not see any. Perhaps there was an issue that day and if so, it's long been fixed. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. It gave us a laugh too! More

We were very disappointed in the room. Beds poor, windows rattled, could not wait to check-out. The staff was very friendly. Great view of the harbor! Breakfast was okay, easy parking, only 1 small elevator.

Great harbor view. Very close to walk to all of the action down the road. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed watching the goings on outside on the balcony. The breakfast was fair. For the price I cannot complain. I see room for improvements in the quality of the furnishings and overall upkeep but appreciate z smaller hotel... More

Stayed here only because pet friendly hotels are so scarce. Previous reviews pretty well warned of the lack of maintenance. Our AC unit worked but poured water onto our patio making sitting outside less than desirable. Too bad! View is wonderful of Harbor but who their feet soaking in moldy water? The mattresses were sagging and old. Bed Linens were... More

Guys will like this if staying over for fishing trips out of the harbor. Rooms nice, bathrooms tired. For the price this is a great stay. No problem staying here again. Not a place to take your "princess". Great walking the boardwalk along the harbor as it is very convenient to all the restaurants and bars.
