Just please...go somewhere else. Stains on the bedding...used bar of soap in the bathroom....mysterious hairs everywhere. This place is crawling with creepy people. Maybe consider sleeping in your car if there aren't any other options.

I stayed for three nights only because everyplace else was sold out. The owner/ manager was rude and very aggressive. Even threatening to punch his wife for giving me a discount rate! It's a horrible old place and just look at the water.

It better be a great value. Very old, dated rooms, and the room door to outside was leaking cold air like crazy. If you want a cheap room you're getting one. Personally for twenty more a night you can do a LOT better. I know because i did.

This room for the price was very good, just one thing it would have been good to have made a nice cup of coffee after we got to the room but no such luck as again there was no coffee or tea making facilities in our room even though we had booked a King room? The bed was very comfortable... More

Its alright for an overnighter or two. Just the bare minimum with complimentary breakfast. Nothing spectacular and the price is a little bit more that its worth, but its okay. The hotel is old and some of the doors to the rooms or bathroom does not close well and you can hear someone slamming the doors to get it to... More

We only stayed one night. The rooms are very old and the furniture is beat up from use. The bed was comfortable and clean. Not bad but needs updated. Will probably stay here again because it was close to our destination.

I have watched it grow old, and deteriorate over the years. It needs a complete overhall. The last one was probably 1970-1980. I noticed a definite change a few... More
