Overall it was a nice place to stay (great location right on the beach) but a bunch of little things was disappointing. The front desk staff always acting like we were an inconvenience to them when we asked them questions and that our opinions were wrong (you don't like the pillows? everyone else likes the pillows, why would we have...

In September, we spent 1 night before heading over to the island and very much enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and beds were comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was stocked with the regulars: eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy,cereal, make your waffles, coffee, juice and milk. The sausage was out of a package and not the greatest, but overall... More

Its a nice place to stay. Its a little heavy on the wallet for the room. You can find real nice rooms just as you come into town from the south just go around the curve as you go back to the south from the Best western.

This hotel is right next to the ferry docks. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast so convenient and very good. Beds were awesome. We will use them again. We liked that the sink, mirror and counter is separate from the shower and toilet.

We checked in after midnight for our honeymoon due to unforeseen hold-ups, it was down in the low 40s and got a room whose heater was not working. The front desk girl was very sweet and accommodating and called maintenance right away. We tried everything to get it running but maintenance came and he had to remove the cover and... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat. Walking distance to everything. Very clean and friendly staff. Comfy beds and nice breakfast buffet. We have stayed here before, and would come back in a heartbeat.

Staid here over 4 weeks cause of work. Excellent hotel. Helpful reception and really good housekeeping. Only minus I could find, was cold room some nights. And found the heating too noisy. High speed internet works great most of the time, ocasionally unstable, different networks, always one of them worked well.
