This is an old hotel that has a charm about it. The rooms and bathrooms are what they are and I had no problem with them. The location is fantastic to both town and the beach. The view is great (if not cloudy). Good off street parking and a quiet area but still only blocks from activity. Nice photos throughout the hotel. Anyway, I would stay here again just as quickly as I would try another location in town. I think it is the staff that makes me feel that way. They were not rude or unhelpful. But they did not go out of their way to make one feel welcomed either. I almost felt bothersome at times. Not that they did anything you could put your finger on just the feeling I got. You will not go wrong staying here. The breakfast was fine, the rooms are fine, it is in a great location, and the price is fair. This hotel could be much more than ‘fine’ with just a little effort on the part of the staff.
