One gets the feeling the management is making a sincere effort to make this hotel more than it is. It is clean, the staff is friendly and breakfast is good. But there are too many misses. The first room offered had a view of the auto body repair shop across the alley. The second room was better, but the king bed took up most of the room, making for very tight quarters. Due to meeting/party and reception facilities, the late night noise was a problem both nights we stayed. A call to the front desk was quickly responded to and the noise was better, but still bothersome. The location leaves much to be desired as the nearby marina and waterfront are rather shabby. We had planned to stay as many as three nights, but left after the second night. I applaud management for their positive efforts, but sometimes you just can't make a sow's ear into a silk purse.
