"I pick the most basic room. No views. It was quiet. The bed very comfortable."
"The priciest room has a the most beautiful view of Pugent Sound. Well worth it! That's where I'm staying next!!"
"We have found that all the rooms are good value with prices adjusted appropriately to size / view etc."
"Each room has a private bath and the size of the rooms, isn't that diverse. Any of the rooms would be great."
"The rooms in the front have bay views, while the Cedar room, where we stayed, was on the quiet side street."
