This hotel does have a nice view of the harbor, albeit the harbor doesn't have much going on and there are railroad tracks between you and the view. After that it's pretty much downhill.
We had a room on the first floor, which is actually down a flight of stairs from the lobby area. The room's furniture and bedding had been updated but that's about all you could say about it.
We have stayed in hundreds of hotels over the years and have never been in one where the carpet was so dirty. It was an absolute disgrace. There is no air conditioning, not that we needed it, but the window opens. The problem is that the last guest had opened it and the crank was broken and there was no way to close it. Reported the window problem to the front desk and 2 days later it as still not fixed. I'm sure the floor sank at least an inch or more from the door to the window across the room. My wife thought we were going to fall out on the railroad tracks. You could see whether the lights were on in the room from the hallway because the door fit so badly. The breakfast was probably the most basic one we've ever seen. Toast, muffins etc. with coffee and juice displayed in a very small room that was so small the muffins had to be placed on a coffee table by the window.
Now to be fair the place is under some pretty major renovations which include the installation of an elevator, but it's going to take a lot more than putting an elevator in to get us back to this hotel again.
