We stayed here before our cruise. The hotel location is great so you can see the ships dock. The room was very large and spacious. They charge you to park which I find strange if you are staying there for the night where else would you leave your car? They also will let you leave your car there when you cruise for a fee. This hotel offers breakfast but it is minimal expect a continental breakfast only. The problem I had with them is they told me one rate over the phone and a different rate when I checked in, luckily I had my confirmation so they told me they would honor the price. In the morning when i checked out the price was still wrong by the same $20.00 they tried to overcharge the previous day. I called her on it again and she finally charged me the correct price I was quoted. Then I wanted to pay with cash and she told me she hoped I had correct change or could get close because she did not have a cash drawer! ok, is this a business or is it not? They should have a small petty cash fund on hand. So I paid her in cash for two rooms and when she added the two rooms together to give me one proce she again increased it by $20.00 - I think the lady just wanted 20 bucks for herself or something I can't figure it out. Imagine how many people put their rooms on a credit card and do not even notice the increase until they get home and then figure it only 20 bucks and it so late and do not question them, nice way to make extra moeny off each guest I guess. This put me off the hotel, I feel like thye are cheating the customer.
