For our first Covid foray this was an ideal place to stay. Rooms were very clean, masks and wipes provided. Breakfast was carry out and very good with fast service. Many good restaurants are nearby. The staff was very welcoming.

Parking is not included in the price which is fine. Upon arrival the valet tells us its $25 a night then says "Good Luck trying to find something cheaper." Well we backed out of the driveway and there was ample parking on the street in front of the hotel. Check-In process was easy and fast except they did not provide us with the welcome letter or breakfast vouchers so we were unaware that breakfast and the pool operated by appointments and orders only. The gave us a bill for breakfast but easily fixed that by sending me to the front desk to retrieve vouchers (which should have been given to us upon arrival). The room was not worth the price. The shower curtain was stained and torn up with missing parts. Sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable and worn but I am just mentioning this in case anyone plans on using it. Staff was not very friendly or inviting. It was not the worst stay but honestly you can get much better service and accommodations for so much less.

Yes, it is expensive especially in the short summer season but it is perfect. We used points for the stay and had a room overlooking the water for our two nights. The front desk clerk was excellent. We got a couple of recommendations on places to eat and they were equally excellent. Breakfast at the hotel was way above average for a Hilton Garden Inn, they had blueberry pancakes and several other items you typically only find in New England. We stayed in seven different hotels in our two week plus trip to the Northeast, this hotel was far and away the best of them.

The staff went above and beyond to be courteous and friendly. Ms. Ellen greeted us in such a welcoming warm and inviting manner. She had a very nice smile and was willing to take her time in helping us with the best possible reservation to meet our needs. She was also very helpful with locating dining places that were open in the immediate area. Ms. Abby checked us out and was extremely nice and thoughtful. Ms. Ellen and Ms. Abby are two wonderful examples of how every employee should treat there guest. We appreciate there help more than they will ever know.
