“Great Location”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We stayed here on the Marina side on our boat. The location is perfect, walk to all. The Visitors Center is a few blocks away where you can get the Trolley, and Bowens Warf is a few steps from this hotel. The Marina side was quiet with a beautiful view of the harbor. An inside pool with outdoor lounges and Adriondeck chairs all around the Marina were perfect to sit and relax. We ate at the 49th Pier, the restaurant attached on Monday NIght. They had live music and a Lobster Lovers Special for $38 that included Clam Chowder, a Lobster with mussels, potatoes, and Corn on the cob served with a Strawberry Shortcake for dessert. A wine special included $19 bottles of wine.

We enter this hotel by chance. It was early evening, gating dark and we were tired from traveling all day long. The receptionists were very helpful and friendly. The room was roomy and nice, very good amenities. The location is very good, walking distance from many attractions. Parking is free for hotel guests. I definitely recommend it.

Pluses:
- Great location. Our rooms overlooked the water and all the boats. Right next to pier with plenty of restaurants within walking distance, boat trips.
- Slept well. Beds were comfortable, rooms did not let in much sound.
- Indoor pool
- Well priced children's breakfast buffet.

Negatives:
- Dated, needs sprucing up. The hotel room was standard to small; the bathroom was definitely small. Old TV, remote didn't work (I didn't really care).
- Overall, had a cramped feeling to it. No extra amenities that I was aware of other than the fitness / pool.
- Overpriced for what they offered.

When we arrived, the concierge was waiting outside the entrance to quickly help with our luggage. Once we entered our room, I quickly pulled open the sliding door to check out our view of the marina (I was surprised to see the sheer curtains were quite torn). Although the marina is beautiful, this view is a common area and we immediately noticed the Adirondack chairs placed approximately 1 ft. from our sliding glass door were filled with garbage, crumpled newspapers and a used ash tray (gross). Paying extra for this was quite a let-down. Also, you'll get blasted by the sun sitting out here for most of the day...I'm surprised the hotel has no awning, pergola, umbrellas, etc. The next day I noticed that someone must have been sitting in our chairs again while we were sleeping and left MORE garbage and a used ashtray on our chairs...I'm uncomfortable with this lack of privacy. I was also surprised that these rooms were not supplied with a refrigerator, I thought this was a standard amenity...I guess we've been spoiled in the past. Anyhow, the staff was friendly and happy to accommodate requests for extra bathroom supplies. For some reason, the cleaning staff never replenished our supplies (shampoo, soap, etc.). On another note, the location is wonderful...walking distance to downtown shops, the wharfs, restaurants, etc. Hotel guests are charged a standard rate for parking in their lot each night but it's a gated lot with a staffed entrance...so you'll feel secure. I had read other reviews about "paper thin walls" but we had no complaints, everything seemed quiet during our stay. However, I would have to agree with other guests that the bathrooms are a little small. And the base of our toilet was really cracked!

Room Tip: I wouldn't waste my time booking a marina view again.

We just returned last night from a 3 day stay--the location of the hotel is great--we never had to use our car and walked everywhere. There are tons of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance and a great view of the harbor and the boats coming and going. We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ground floor harborview rooms are great with a sliding door out to a seating area/second floor rooms...

Walk to everything in the harbor area. Restaurants, shops, boat rides, dinner cruises right in hotel area. Short drive to the tourist spots. Friendly staff, restaurant on-site. Outdoor bar and restaurant with live music.
