“Home away fom home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This place has it all, the place is clean, the staff friendly. Alex the concierge greets all like family. Comfortable beds, don't get a room in front, that will avoid street noise! This property does not incorporate a restaurant, but there are lots of wonderful eateries nearby! Try them all if you have time. This is our third visit, we love it here. Take seat on the porch, sip a cocktail/beer fom your own refrigerator, watch the wildlife stroll by all day. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Not at the front

Second time staying here and satisfied both times. The check-in was quick and efficient, the room was well equipped and clean and the hotel was quiet and safe and close to everything. There is only a roof-top jacuzzi but understandable considering the building heritage and number of rooms. A partnership with one of the local hotels (full service Hilton maybe) would be great for guests looking for a pool but otherwise this is a great spot. Breakfast and dinner next door at the Betsy is also a great find this trip.

Couldn't have had a better location, directly opposite a park and the beach. Place was older but well kept, rooms well appointed. An issue was the DJ and music scene behind the hotel on adjoining property. They shut down each night by 9:30, but were so loud in late afternoon you could hardly read in your room or on the terrific little balconies overlooking the beach. LIked the place, not the noise. Maybe the DJ was just a spring break thing. Terrific restaurants just down the street.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback about your stay at our property. We are very happy you had a great time and wanted to let you know that the loud music was due to the events that happens during spring break. We hope to see you again on your next vacation.

The greeting and check in got the stay off to an excellent start. Happy and helpful staff are invaluable to promoting the holiday experience.
The location could not be bettered and there are little touches (Coffee and Cold Drinks on Tap) in reception, that enhance the overall experience.
The room we had was on the 4th floor which was ideally located for using the rooftop jacuzzi.
Kitchen facilities are more than adequate, the bed comfortable and the bathroom did the job.
My other half said that she liked it a lot, which is some recommendation!

Room Tip: Top floor will mean no overhead noise. (Don't know if there is noise on lower floors) Top floor...

Great location. Rooms very roomy and nice. Staff very helpful. While there are no amenities except a jacuzzi, you don't really need anything else. Plenty of restaurants and the beach nearby. Rooms can fit 4 if necessary, so it is very cost-effective. View is not very good, but I didn't come for the view and didn't spend that much time in the room.

I've been staying here for more than 13 years, twice a year. I love the location, the hotel is maintained very well, and the staff are very helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Known issues:
1) the key cards easily become demagnetized so don't let them get wet or near your phone or credit cards.
2) the internet system requires you to enter your access code every time so try to store the password in your device the first time.
3) The rooms in the back are too noisy in the mornings.

Room Tip: Don't get a room along the back wall. The garbage trucks are unbearable!

Don't bother to stay here. The small room is one ting, but the chipped and banged up decor and tiny elevator and rooms that look out to a wall really are lacking. The "lounge" on the fourth floor is a joke with it's big vinyl furniture that is hot and so low it's like sitting on the floor. The hot tub is broken and you feel as if there is no one there running the place. The outside lounge area walls are covered in tacky plastic plants. The view from the fourth floor "lounge" area is nice if you stand and look past the drunks sleeping in the park.

Thank you for your feedback, and we apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced. Our small historic property is a unique destination for many of our owners and guests. We regret that one of our Jacuzzi was under repair during your stay, and hope you were able to utilize the second one at the adjacent building. The minor wear and tear of the property is temporary, as we are getting ready for a full renovation starting this September. Thank you again for your comments.
