This hotel was convenient as it's located right across the street from ferry terminal. It does have small rooms, so-so beds, small showers and no heat (but there was an A/C unit connected to the window in our room). The staff was pleasant. We opted to do a package deal with the hotel after Labor Day that featured our room, bike rentals, $100 in food coupons to two local restaurants, a welcome bag and chairs and an umbrella for the beach. Very nice. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance. The property also has a restaurant on the grounds, but it was closed for the season during our September visit. Hot water, tea and hot chocolate and coffee are available adjacent to the lobby. There is a nice porch on the front of the building to relax and enjoy a cup of java or read a good book. There are about 25 channels for TV, but no ESPN, so plan on going to a nearby pub if you need to get your sports fill. Wifi costs more than $3 per day. All in all, we were satisfied with our stay.
