We stayed in a charming 1950s-like room in one of the buildings. The hotel is small and quaint and has a helpful, friendly staff. The building we stayed in was one story and had a big front porch shared by all the rooms. Each room had two rocking chairs out on the porch. It was very cozy and very quiet! We did not hear a peep from the porch or from the rooms surrounding us.
Not only was the location quiet, but it is within walking distance of a couple of places to eat, including the Flying Melon and a coffee place. Parking was never an issue.
We stayed in a queen room in one of the bungalows. In our room, there was no phone. I actually liked that a lot - adds to the peaceful atmosphere. There was also no refrigerator, but we didn't mind that. The bathroom lacked surface area (it has a pedestal sink), but it had a nice walk-in shower instead of a tub, which I highly prefer. The bathroom door was really loud and creaky, probably because it's humid and it's an old building.
I thought this place was priced very reasonably for the island, and I will most definitely stay there again. So quiet!
