I had 1 night at Fess Parker as part of a group tour and I was impressed. I had read some previous reviews and apart from not being to work the shower, my stay was lovely. The proximity to the beach - across the road, and the pier - down the street are the best things about the property. The property is older and it doesn't have the latest luxurious appointments in the rooms but there was absolutely nothing wrong with what they do have.
The Buffet Breakfast was excellent, something for everyone plus they will cook your eggs to order.
I found the service to be fine, a little slow but that could have something to do with the size of the property and I was part of a large group.
