My adult children woke up just as we were driving into the hotel - they were surpised at how nice it looked from the outside. First, I would probably have rated the hotel as a "4" but the view alone is worth a "5". The room itself was fine - a queen bed and a sofa bed. Not a lot of room and the sofa bed was not particularly comfortable. However, for $5 we could do our wash which was very nice late in the trip! It does appear that there has been more attention paid to the outside appearance and the common areas than the rooms. To be sure, there was nothing wrong with the room - it just appeared more basic than what I expected given the appearance of the other areas. Breakfast was good, not great. However, just being able to sit on the porch and look at the view would be enough for me to return here. I saved $25 by taking a room looking away from the water - would definitely save the money and just sit on the porch! Not sure about smoked salmon and pastried - didn't see those at our breakfast.
