I agree with other reviewers on cleanliness, nice decor, pleasant staff. Also about mediocre breakfast, isolated location. When we moved in we found the room hot, with no air conditioning. When we complained we were told that while some rooms had air conditioning ours didn't. We were not offered a different room and were given an inadequate fan. After two nights of discomfort we decided to change hotels. We tried to work with Expedia and the hotel to get a refund on the two nights left on our reservation. No luck. I tried for another two or three hours when I got back including talking to Expedia management. So far no refund.
Couple other things to watch for. There was no shuttle service other than to ferry, we were not offered free ferry tickets, pillow top mattress or valet parking as listed on Expedia.
