My wife and i spent a long weekend here in early September. Great locationas it is on the water with a nice marina. Excellent food and a decent bar. Room was nice and bed comfortable. My issue is with the attitude of the employees and the general feeling of the place being disorganized.i had the exact same experience as a previous reviewer. Bell man was great and directed us upstairs to check in. There was a podium with no one there. A woman came out with an attitude and made us feel like it was a chore to check us in. It was as if it was weird for someone to be checking in at this hotel. Same thing at the inside bar. We went down for a drink and the male bartender who was not busy made us wait about 10 minutes before asking us if we wanted a drink.
When he asked us what we wanted it was as if it was a chore for him to get a drink for us. This guy had absolutely no personality. You generally get a feeling of the employees saying to themselves that "they should feel lucky to be staying here". We will not be back!
