2 nights in Sept. for a middle aged couple with car

Would the Blue Dory, Ballards or Hotel Manisses be out best choice?

Is parking available at each place?

Thanks!

We are a middle aged couple and for two days I don't think you would need a car. All three of your choices have very little parking. I think at Ballard's you would have to take your chances in the public parking near the ferry. I believe there is a small lot behind the Blue Dory and there is limited parking right in front of The Manisses.

The Surf has reopened and they used to be open until Columbus Day so I would assume they will be open. I know there is a parking lot because everyone who stayed there stayed at least a week because there used to be a six night minimum in July and August. (not now) and then you really needed a car for carting all your stuff.

I agree, you don't need the car, unless you want to tour the island and don't want to rent a moped or bike, or take a taxi tour.

As for where to stay, while Ballards has been renovated, it attracts more of a younger crowd. I would go with the Blue Dory or Hotel Manisses.

You really don't need the car and it will add expense to your trip, I think it is $100.00 round trip for the car if you can get a reservation.

Hotel Manisses would be my first choice and then probably the Blue Dory. Have you checked out the 1661 Inn? It is owned by the same family that own the Manisses and it has some very nice rooms.
