My husband and have stayed at this motel several times. In the past it was a Best Western that was in very poor shape. New management has changed the name and made much needed repairs. Lots of fresh paint and new carpeting. However, not too much attention to detail. We had a large, third floor corner room with a nice... More

I sent this as an email to the manager of the hotel. Generally when I choose a hotel for my family I am well pleased with my choice and feel that other than being complimentary, I need to say nothing at all. When a hotel is well managed, there is nothing to say other than “job well done – thank... More

Stayed overnight , They are Remodeling rooms and most seem to be done. Next they are going to work on the lobby. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool is large and has a nice view of the water. Some of the rooms face the water and a park. They... More

Hotel is located on the waterfront of Charlotte Harbor. It is adjacent to a large city park and is on the "river walk," and an easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Staff is friendly and very accommodating.

Good hotel with pleasant surroundings, clean, friendly helpful staff but it needs money spending on it in the near future, although we would go back again. The park outside is very good and a walk around the village and out to the pier is worth doing.
