We stayed at this hotel while visiting our daughter at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy for parent's weekend this past September. The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. However it is important to note that it is not located in the nicest part of town and there is not a whole lot to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. It is located very close to the Academy, just a short drive away and close to the ferry if you want to go across to Long Island.
The staff at the hotel was very nice. They went out of their way to answer any questions and make our stay as pleasant as possible. I was a little nervous about the quality of the service based on some poor reviews that I had read prior to staying there however, we did not find that to be the case. We had requested a roll-a-way bed one night so that our daughter could stay with us but they didn't have one available. It could have ended there as we had not requested the roll-a-way with our reservation but instead, they upgraded us to a suite w/pullout sofa at no additional charge for which we were extremely appreciative.
Just as a note, they have a restaurant in the hotel as well as an indoor heated pool however we did not have a chance to try either out.
All things considered, I would have no problems staying there again. However, should you choose to stay here, you should have reasonable expectations. It is basically a 3 star hotel located in a 2 star area and you should not expect 4 or 5 star accommodations, just the basics. If you are expecting anymore than that, you're likely to be disappointed. If you have reasonable expectations, you'll probably enjoy your stay.
