The greatest asset this hotel has to offer is its location. Aside from having a perfect spot right on the water, there is much to be desired about the facility. I have stayed here twice over the last year- once in August of 2012 and just this month (March 2013).
The only rooms offered for my recent stay were for two double beds. I am by no means a tall person, but when I say my feet were hanging off the bed I am not exaggerating! My boyfriend and I spent our weekend away together sleeping in separate beds because we would have to sleep on top if each other to fit. We felt like an 80 year old couple! The rooms were okay aside from the bed situation. The decor is out of date, but that should be a simple fix. I know the hotel said they were renovating, but to what extent? Replacing all of the double beds in the various rooms- probably not something that will happen quickly.
Also- all of the soap, shampoo, and conditioner that is offered is in old pump wall mounts. I worry that it may sit in these containers for years. I would prefer the mini bottle of shampoo and a bar of soap over the mysterious pumps labeled on the wall. Especially if some jerk wanted to be funny and put something in them that's not meant to be there. I may be paranoid, but at least I know my hair won't fall out or become bleached from the mystery "soap."
The Restaurant at the hotel was very good. We ate breakfast there twice and dinner twice and enjoyed our meals. The outdoor pool and deck area are also very nice in the summer.
Overall, the hotel was average and needs a lot of updating. A few changes here could really make this hotel stand out in the area.
