The hotel was under renovation and had troubles finding the way in by car. The mattress was dirty, and could barely see the harbour although the room is supposed to have a harbour view. The worst part was the sofa bed - poor quality mattress and bed that it sinks down on the head and feet, and the linens smelled...

The Hotel is on a main road to the Long Harbor ferry, it is quiet at night. You get a good sleep.I enjoyed the songs of the many birds around the Hotel. The main building is closed for renovations. A small building in the rear is open. We stayed on the upper floor room, with a tunnel view of the...

The pictures on their website are very misleading. The Bad: Carpeting throughout is filthy. Mold in the bathtub. WiFi was very weak, when you could get it to work at all. Bed was like a rock. We were not told about the renovations until a few days before we arrived. We used an Island Daily Deals coupon for two nights,...

The hotel is being renovated, so is not the "resort" experience at all. That being said, the rooms available were very reasonable, clean and had nice views. They are un-renovated, so a bit dated. We stayed upstairs in room 309 which is accessed by stairs only (no elevator). Clean room with nice linens, good bed, clean bath w/good water pressure,...

After booking a room that was non-refundable, then a few days before we arrived we were sent an email saying 'It is our pleasure to inform all arriving guests that we have begun renovations on our main hotel building. As such, all guests will be directed to the rear of the property (annex building) to access our lobby, reception and...

What can I say about this hotel. Well nothing good that's for sure. It started right at arrival. See what they don't tell you is that the hotel is under full construction and only one wing is actually open. There is garbage and junk everywhere and the building is mostly covered in construction plastic. But hey we were there and...

We visited this hotel a week ago. The hotel is under renovation, which we did not know when we booked. The "included" breakfast consisted of some muffins, bread (toast), cereal, coffee, tea and liquid yogurt. I am gluten free, so there was nothing there for me to eat. Luckily, we had inquired on check in, so we went to the...

Nice staff and clean smelling *but*... This place had grubby looking carpets and the worst mattress I've ever tried to sleep on. No joke. It was ancient, creaky, uneven and felt like there were broken springs. I couldn't wait to get out and go home after my 5 hours of poor broken sleep. I might have slept on the floor...

We stayed here in march for one night. It was very well priced. The hotel is still under renovation with no restaurant or bar open. The main part of the hotel is closed but we stayed in the "motel" style side. Our room was ground floor with direct access from outside. Each room facing the harbour had a balcony or...
