This was one of the most reasonably priced hotels on the island, I presumed because it is not on the beach. It is located immediately by the ferry dock. It is an older place, shows some wear. The manager was very kind and let me check in 3 hours early. The room was clean, just dated. NO ELEVATOR so you...

we stayed here the night before our cruise and they let us leave our car parked free which pretty much paid for the room in parking fees at the cruise lines. Also the little continental breakfast was nice and the room is big and very clean.

Very clean, great flooring and furniture. Great self serve breakfast selection. Someone had done a fine job remodeling. Very surprised. Would totally stay here again. Pool is clean. Dining area adjacent to lobby appears professionally decorated. Ok for couples, great for families.

Older hotel, rooms were clean and front desk was helpful. Must say it was rather noisy so if you are a light sleeper best book something else. There is traffic noise and also ferry noise. There was nothing near to go for a meal and taxis do not like to come here as it is out of there way. They...

This could be a good choice for pre-cruise stays but definitely not for us. This is a pretty bare bones older budget hotel. No elevators, worn but clean room (except for heat/a/c unit with tons of dust). Our biggest negatives were 1. the really offense and pungent air freshener that gave us headaches and 2. the terrible beds - a...

Reasonably priced hotel. Front desk gentleman was very welcoming and helped point out local attractions as well as providing us with a town map. The room was clean, as were the grounds. Parking is good. However... if you're a light sleeper as I am, I do not recommend staying here. We knew we were right beside the ferry terminal but...

We booked a cruise one year in advance and decided to book a room at Scottish Inn so that we could board the ship rested. Two weeks before our cruise, we decided to drive from Oklahoma early, and wanted to stay 2 more nights, but the current price was so high we stayed at a different hotel. When we went...

Neat little place for the price. It's a really old hotel that's been nicely updated right by the ferry landing. The lobby area is especially nice. Rooms aren't fantastic, but they're clean with no carpet. We had a dirt-dauber (wasp) in our room, but we handled it. Beds are hard, but perfectly fine for a night's stay before a cruise....

We stayed here the night before our three back to back cruises and the night we arrived back in port from the last cruise. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and had our room ready for us earlier than we expected. Very clean and roomy hotel rooms. The cruise parking is in the front of the business and they have...

This was the perfect spot to stay the night before the cruise. It was clean and the staff were friendly. The room was plenty big and even had a microwave and refrigerator. Plenty of closet space and a nice looking pool. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot with excellent water pressure. The bed was a bit on...
