For a young couple & a well-behaved dog, Marguerite proved to have its high points & low points. The mere fact that we could bring our dog to Hampton Beach (during peak season) was a real selling point for us. It's only $20.00/night extra if you bring a dog, which I think is reasonable.
Other high points include the hotel's prime location - right between the beach boardwalk & beautiful marshes for walking the dog in the AM & at sunset. Restaurants & shops - and most importantly - the beach - is less than 5 minutes away!
In addition, noise was a non-issue for us, even though dogs were staying in adjacent rooms (however, we found the hotel to have thin walls, so depending upon your neighbors, noise COULD prove to be problematic). However, parking is ideal, as it is always available, close-by & included in the price & we felt adequately "private" in our corner-room.
Nevertheless, cleanliness WAS an issue. I am hoping the (blood?-) stained, sandy sheets were the result of being put into a dog-friendly room...although, even after the cleaning services came through in the AMs, the icky-factor remained the same. I was a bit frightened of getting bitten...
The air conditioner was so old it shook the wall & made loud screeching & rocking noises all night, which proved to be uncomfortable for sleeping, but by the 2nd night we were able to get used to it.
