We were referred to Lagoona in by a B&B we called down the street which was full. Alison & Gunther were absolutely wonderful - welcoming from the moment we called to the day we checked out.
When we pulled up, I thought "Oh no! A motel!" But it didn't feel like one at all... As others have said, the rooms, etc. can probably use a facelift, but it still felt inviting and homey. And most important to me - the bathroom was clean & the shower was great. Our room was very spacious with two double beds & a balcony overlooking the lagoon. There was traffic outside but with the door closed it wasn't too bad, and that's what you get for the view...
The breakfast was excellent & plentiful, and the staff were all wonderful and accommodating - appearing within moments to offer us coffee, etc.
Lagoona in is not a 5* hotel, and doesn't pretend to be. But for a warm & welcoming stay at a good price, I highly recommend it!
