Just spent a long weekend there. Location can't be beat. Park your car and walk everywhere.
They are starting to refurbish but the lobby is half done and the orange and turquoise are Howard Johnson circa 1965.
Now the rooms. The rooms - need to be gutted. Completely. The walls are dirty. The rug is gross. The bathroom has no fan so it gets humid and sticky. Shower could use a mat - very slippery and dangerous.
Last year when I stayed I was told upgrades would be done by now. NOT the case. And for $300+ a night you could call it close to highway robbery.
I gave it higher ratings for the location, views and staff.
I want to come back next year. Please don't disappoint me again!
