Place has gone downhill since the owner passed away last May. We had to ask them to clean the room. My feet were black from the floors. Had to constantly ask for pool towels. The manager George is very helpful but it's too much for one person. I won't go back.

This was our 2nd time here at OBD - we stayed here in March 2014 and had nothing but wonderful things to say about it when it was owned by Kay. She was a fantastic host and George and DJ kept things humming. Kay passed late this summer. Out of the blue an e-mail came saying OBD was under new... More

Booked "junior suite" w. breakfast for family of 4 for 2 nites for $672. Upon arrival we found out that no breakfast is included! In the room (appr 23 m2) only double bed + single bed. After request half broken x-bed was delivered. Paper thin walls, lousy AC and dirty pool area. Waste of money!

The only reason I would even think of staying here again is because of the property manager (George). We have been staying here the same 10 days for years, with great customer service and a fair room for a fair price. The new owners have now decided to raise the room prices over $120 per night and are not keeping... More

We had stayed at this hotel before and loved it. When we stayed last year it was an adult only facility and it was clothing optional at the pool. After we arrived at the hotel and checked in, we headed to our room and had to go through the pool area to get there. Stuck on the gate to the... More

After coming here for a lot of years and it being our favorite place to visit, It is sad that this place was sold and taken over by a group that just doesn't care. When you stayed here, Kay, DJ and the rest of the staff made you feel like it was you home. Now that it was taken over... More

Received official email from the new owners confirming what was posted in a previous review, The email clearly states that the Clothing Optional pool policy ends starting Nov 1, 2014. There were so many positives about the property, but this is a significant feature and now that its gone, I feel like Tripadvisor should reset the ratings for this property... More

Stayed in the Pool House street side. Really enjoyed sitting on the front porch on quiet Center Street in the evenings. Room was very clean and decorated nicely. Just steps from the pool. Pool area was also well kept and everyone we encountered was friendly. Highly recommend you make arrangements for parking in advance with one of the properties parking... More
