The hotel appears to have been built in the 60s, with a tower addition a few years later. Overall, a decent property, and I enjoyed my stay there on business for a week. Here's some specifics:
*Views from the uppers floors in the tower are fantastic. However, a colleague stayed in the low-rise section attached to the lobby, and the room conditions and views in that section were not so good.
*The grounds are well maintained, and appear to have been updated. The pool area is very nice.
*My guest room in the tower was quite large. The bathroom, however, was small. I didn't notice worn furniture in my room, as some of the reviews have mentioned.
*I tried the bars at the poolside and at the waterfront locations - both provided good service.
*There were hardly any stores or restaurants near the hotel. It seemed a little deserted in the area. Some buildings near the hotel and harbor appeared to have been a shopping/restaurant complex back in the day, but these all look pretty much abandoned.
*The parking fee seemed steep for the area, considering all the open space in the vicinity
*Be prepared for barking seals all night if your room faces the marina.
Overall, the positive elements outweighed the negative ones for me, and I'd stay here again.
