We stayed at the Lighthouse Court after reading many reviews of many properties. We were a bit worried, especially after one reviewer's comment about a "bullet hole" in the window. The Lighthouse Court turned out to be a pleasant surprise; nice staff, good location, and nice atmosphere. The room itself was nothing special - Spartan comes to mind - but it was really clean and the bathroom was nicely equipped with new towels and good-quality toiletries. Parking basically doesn't exist at the hotel but we happened onto street parking in front of the hotel and didn't move our car the entire weekend. The property is enclosed by a wall around the perimeter and no room seems to face directly onto the street. But try to get a room that is on the interior because it's nicer to walk out into the courtyard/pool area, which is nicely landscaped and great for sitting & relaxing. The office - as shown on the floorplan - is next to the main entrance and the rooms along that wall are on Whitehead Street.
