A group of four of us stayed here over the weekend.We had two double rooms overlooking the harbor.The price was fair and we all felt the hotel was a good choice; it's right on the harbor, lots of restaurants, shopping, interesting things to see and do nearby.
the strong points almost had this hotel up to a four rating:
the strong: good parking (no charge), decent sized, clean rooms, competent and friendly staff, location, nice amenities (newspaper at the door in the morning, complimentary bottled water in the rooms, bathrobes)
The not so strong: bathrooms, while very clean and servicable, had very little room for toiletries (pedestal sinks); lighting could have been better in the bathroom and in the bedroom (only lamps-no overhead lighting - hard to do make-up); some noisy guests in a room next door that could be heard late at night.
The weak: There was a bar on site (also a restaurant which we did not use) where we enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail. On Saturday night after dinner we decided we would have a night cap when we returned to the hotel at 10:15 PM. The bar was closing and the bartender was not at all interested in serving us. One of the things we look for in a hotel is a lounge/bar where you can relax and have a drink after dinner. Even pre-season closing at 10:00 on a Saturday night seemed odd and somwhat off-putting
For the most part we enjoyed our stay; we liked the location and lots of things about the hotel.
we would consider it again
