You cannot beat the price and location. It was way cheaper than any of the Days Inns and Holiday Inns and it was right across the street from the docks so we didn't have to pay to park when we went over to the island. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was pretty cute, food was good in the lounge.
The room smelled funny. We kept the windows open when we were in the room to air it out a bit but it didn't really help. I don't know what it was, whether it was cleaning chemicals or what but it was pretty bad. There were dead bugs smashed on the walls. The mattress and pillows were covered in bedwetting plastic that crinkled whenever we moved. Some of the staples in the carpeting were sticking through and got me in the foot a few times. I just did not like being in the room at all. I felt uneasy and was glad when we left during the day or went out to dinner. That was just one room, though, so maybe it was not one of their best rooms.
I would recommend the Embers to those who just need a cheap, convenient place to stay, because it was certainly that!
