I stayed here for a week on business and couldn't seriously fault the place. One minor gripe (costing a star in my rating) that I'll get out of the way quickly is that a band was playing on a Thursday night with thumping bass until midnight. Uh, what? But it is a 'resort' hotel, with three restaurants/bars and casino, and private beach, and it has resort in the name so that should set expectations.
That said it was also the most attractive business option at the time -- close to Main St, free wifi, desk etc., so you'd think they'd keep big parties for the weekend. I called the front desk around 11:45 to ask about the noise and they sent up some earplugs, and music stopped at midnight.
So, good things. The Hooded Merganser (sounds ominous doesn't it? Like a superhero villain) is nice and has decent offerings for breakfast and dinner. Weirdly they don't have a buffet though and breakfast service was very slow so I'd pre-order before showering in the morning. Friendly staff though and good environment. Soggy microwaved fries/wedges with breakfasts weren't so impressive.
Of course it was clean and well managed as expected for the price. It's no Shangri-La but a solid 4-Star hotel. Overall a good stay and recommended.
