If you find yourself in the position where you end up in Rockport, whether for business or pleasure, then this is likely the best place to stay. We arrived and the desk clerk had a strange look on his face. Turns out that the elevator was broken. This was not a problem for us, but I would imagine that if I was disabled, this would be a huge problem. And, judging by the look on his face, this had been a major problem for people who came before us. No matter, we moved on and checked in. The room we had on the second floor was great. It was immaculately clean, very large, and had a little kitchenette with a small set-up in case we had decided to have something to eat in our room. It even had a view of the bay, which was nice. The television was a flat screen with plenty of cable options, but every now and again the sound would go out, which is odd. No complaints about the room at all. The breakfast the next morning was as you might expect for a free breakfast that comes with the room. Certainly nothing outstanding, but nothing terribly wrong either. Oh, there was a pancake maker. That was nice. All and all it was a fine place to stay and, most importantly, it was clean. When you are staying in a small, if not slightly run-down town, like Rockport, is there really a greater compliment that one could give a hotel besides saying that it was clean?
