Frosted glass door on the bathroom which might bother some people but we didn't mind, all you can see is a silhouette of whoever is in the bathroom anyway. In...

My family and I were verbally assaulted by one of the staff here. We were so concerned that we checked out of the hotel early in the morning as we didn't feel safe. We then contacted the manager, Scott, who refunded our room. American Express had already declined the charges per our request as they agreed the treatment we received...

In addition - the staff was very friendly and helpful, the pool was great for unwinding, the parking was plentiful (although not free). Wifi and breakfast were fine. All in all, everything...

I was pleasantly surprised but our stay at the hotel. It's not in the best location as it is quite high up state street so is a 30 min walk to the beach but it does provide the chance for a nice walk down this great road. The hotel was good pool which is open pretty much all day. Breakfast...

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated in a modern style. The bed is very comfortable and the size of the room and bathroom is good for a party of 4. We like the location of this hotel, on the quiet section of State street with walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Very pet friendly at this hotel. The room was comfortable and in a quiet location for the most part. It's in walking distance to all the activity on State Street. Across the street there is a market that you can buy most everything if you need to. The staff is very friendly maybe not so knowledgeable of the surrounding area....
