Homestead Hotel

My bf and I were considering staying at the homestead. We are young professionals and want to get away for a few days (live in Chicago but grew up in Jersey), and it seems affordable and decent. But the reviews a\re questionable.

Someone please tell me- what's the deal with it? Bad/Good area?

Quality of room? ANY information would be appreciated! Thanks!

The Homestead is a rat's nest. Terrible. Don't stay here. It's a 100+year hotel that went "condo" and done very poorly. Exposed pipes, tine rooms and 3 stacks of wallpaper with closet bathrooms w/cast iron sinks. And they charge you for everything, including parking. We toured thi splace when they first codoed it, and we ran away without looking back. Usually you get what you pay for, but this place is a down right rip off.

If you want a hotel with a pool, try Porto Call or Flanders.

If you want a real nice upscale place, try Atlantis Inn. This is the best on the island, but a little pricy. However your stay is inclusive of meals, parking, and many “very nice” amenities so it may be worth it, depending on when you stay. Good Luck!

Definitely not a place for young professionals! The Atlantis Inn is your top choice. www.atlantisinn.com. Breakfast is included.

If that's too pricey, you could try the Scarborough Inn, which is clean and nice, but more family oriented and not as private. http://www.scarboroughinn.com/
