The hotel room was clean and nicely furnished (I loved the 19th century pictures in the rooms and the hallways/lobby. Staff was friendly and efficient. Hotel was close to beach though traffic congestion and construction made it a 35 minute by car trip. Two quirky things: before you can turn on a light switch in the room you must insert key card (we fumbled around in the dark before we found it) where it remains as long as you want electricity. Second thing: the blackout curtains didn't overlap which left a bright slit of light in the room all night. I tried a few things to close it and finally gave up. The only real gripe: We arrived at breakfast room by 7:45 am and the fruit bowl was already empty and was not replenished. Next morning we got there even earlier in hopes of having some fruit (one of my kids is gluten intolerant and couldn't have much else -had to visit local grocery store instead). No fruit again-the bowl wasn't even out this time! I asked the chef who apologized but said there'd be no fruit. Plan to bring your own fruit if you can't have the usual: pancakes, french toast, sausage, dry cereal, oatmeal, juice). Bring your own drinking water too as the hotel room water smelled/tasted like strong chemicals.
