We booked this hotel at the last minute as we needed to get an early morning ferry to Port Jeff. To tell the truth we didn't think it would be much good as it was the only hotel in the area so had no real competition. How wrong we were!
Free parking, free pool, free breakfast! The room was huge, clean and very comfortable but the best thing about this hotel was the staff.
The receptionist was a lovely, bubbly lady called Olivia for whom nothing was too much trouble. She recommended some good places for food and drink in the town and then hunted down decaf coffee and fresh milk for us at 1am. She loved my husband's English accent and we all spent ages chatting about the Olympics and what London is like. Breakfast was good and hot and the lady who waited tables and assisted was also lovely.
We stayed in about over a dozen different hotels in the USA in the summer and the standard was really high but this was amongst the best for customer service.
