We love the Glenmore Plaza. Despite what some of the negative reviews have to say, it really is a wonderful place to stay. What you have to understand is that it is very old--I believe it dates from the 1890's--and is family-run.
It is not corporate. If you're looking for the antiseptic charmlessness of a Holiday Inn, then the Glenmore Plaza is not for you and neither is any other hotel on the island. The rooms are European-small, there's no elevator, the floors are crooked, and bedding tends to get damp (you're on an island, after all).
That being said, we've found the Glenmore to be clean and quaint with a very helpful staff. Our stays have been quiet and fun, and reasonably priced when compared other hotels on the island. We can't wait to return!
