The outside of the hotel was in need of repair from the front to the back. Getting the mold off the outside steps that go to the rooms upstairs would be a plus, it needs painting/or staining, The bushes around the stairs need trimmed. That's just cosmetic. The wood is rotting on the outside. They charge a good price to stay here. The food is not overpriced, but it's not inexpensive either. I just feel when you pay that kind of money for a room, that the hotel should also be kept up. I didn't want to smoke on the porch or the entry way so I opted for the parking lot. I did notice an employee smoking in front of the stairs that lead to the covered porch that go to the restaurants. I smoke and disagree with that.. There are chairs outside along the walkway, but they were dirty and molded, nothing alittle bleach wouldn't cure and people walking past.
After seeing the outside of the hotel, front and back. I thought oh my. But when we opened the door to our room a I really impressed. The room was quaint, no hairdryer, no ironing board, plenty of storage, nice size bathroom, and the room was nicely cleaned. No dirt, no dust. The bathroom was nicely decorated, fluffy towels and clean, plenty of storage for your essentials in the cubby hole where the towels are kept. The room kinda of slanted, but only by the patio door. The view was beautiful from the second floor, they have a totally screened porch with 2 chairs and a little table to sit. It might be nice in the fall, but with the airconditioning going it was extrememly hot out there. The screening keeps alot of the breeze from coming in. There was kareoke, it was loud....there were only a handful of people when we went in, so we didn't stay, but we could hear them from the deck (yes I turned off the airconditioning) I was entertained. I smiled and sang along from there. My husband wasn't as receptive.
We walked to all the nearby shops and that was fun...and we went to the beach which was beautiful. We never ate inside the actual restaurant, we always ate outside at Carolines and the breakfast was wonderful, plenty to fill you up, good food and coffee, that to me was enjoyable.
The people were friendly and the restaurant service at the hotel was very good.
But to pay the price we paid just for that room. Would I stay again.......No not for the price
