We stayed here for three days. The room was clean and nicely decorated but there seemed to be a bit too much furniture for the size of the room. In addition to two queen beds there was a sofa bed, chair, coffee table, end tables, desk, desk chair and large dresser which had the TV on top. Check-in was easy and quick and the people at the front desk were friendly when we came in contact with them which was only once or twice during our stay.
Since we were staying such a short time, we asked that housekeeping bypass our room. There was plenty of towels and we opted not to have the sheets changed every day. It seems like a waste of water and soap. A couple of things that would have been nice to have was a microwave and access to a national newspaper. They did have complimentary copies of the local paper. The small refrigerator was useful.
The water pressure was very good but we had the smallest bathroom ever. There was nowhere to put our toiletries and my cosmetics. We ended up taking the tissue holder and extra roll of toilet paper off the back of the toilet and used that space to put a few things. The rest went on the dresser in the bedroom.
The one big disappointment was the view from our room. I reserved a traditional room because it said "mix of limited views of the harbor". Well, our limited view was mostly the end of the east wing building. We were in the last room in the main building. I walked in and saw that and it ruined the whole stay for me. Limited is one thing but almost non-existent is another.
We went down to the fire pit one evening and it was a nice touch. We were able to enjoy a couple adult beverages after dinner.
Breakfast is nice if you don't care for eggs. We ate there the last day to save time but we had to rush around a bit to get there by 9:30. The other days we went into town to the Daily Paper. The one day we ate there we were able to snag a table even though it was very busy.
We'd probably think about staying here again but I'd certainly be sure we had a room with more of a view.
