Although this hotel is charming and the staff friendly, it leaves lots and lots to be desired. First, there seems to be constant conflicts between the hotel, the marina and the homeowners association because some of the hotel rooms have been sold as condos. The homeowners associations has padlocked the washers and dryers, the laundry facilities and the ice machine. There is very little parking as some home owners have four or five vehicles and take up most available parking. We saw open confrontations between homeowners, homeowner employees and customers in the parking lot. The pool area is full of locals with very loud and unsupervised children and we found we could not even use the pool. There is a tiki hut that seems to be occupied most afternoon by drunks. The outside restrooms are filthy and often lack paper goods. The restaurant has been closed for some time and appears no sign of reopening. there is a 15 to 20 mile drive to ANYTHING. The website is not a very good indicator of what the facilities are really like. The hotel desk close at about 5 PM and there is no one to help guests and no apparent security, including cameras on site. it is kind of a scary place.
