The hotel and restaurant are next to the marina, so the place is filled with friendly and casual boat people. While I do not know about the hotel itself, the restaurant is a great place to relax, with a very generous Happy Hour (rum drinks are $2, local beer is $1) and really tasty food. The kitchen can get backed up, meaning long waits for orders, but a recent renovation and dining room expansion should take care of that problem. Chris, the manager, is super friendly and eager to make the place as great as possible. Can't wait to return.
