We arrived earlier than the check in time & were assigned a room (416) within 15 minutes. The check in person, Autumn, was amazing. She was also there upon checking out too. The hotel is located in downtown which was close to everything. We had a beautiful view of the water. We will definitely stay here again in the future....

The hotel is easy to find and valet parking is almost mandatory. The lobby is warm and welcoming, as is the staff. The rooms are great! Two beds, a couch, a desk, a bench, a luggage rack, closet, and set of drawers. There's a mini kureig, mini fridge and plenty of outlets to charge your phone. The beds were comfortable,...

Everything was good. Only downside- pay extra for valet 18.00/day + tips each time you use your car (~5-15.00/day) + tip to load and/or unload (10-20.00) And we had a dog ...(50.00 / stay) All added up to more than we were thinking when choosing a place online. Don't get me wrong, place and staff were great- just more expensive...

Great hotel. We've stayed here many times and enjoy our stay every time. The room was large, pool was great, and the coffee and cookies are a nice arrival treat. We didn't bring our dog, but we love that they accept dogs here. It makes traveling very convenient, especially if you have an old or infirm dog.

My sister, my boyfriend, and I all stayed here Halloween weekend. We had a blast! We were originally going to bring our dogs but at the last minute we decided not to, and the hotel staff were genuinely sad that we didn't bring them. It was so sweet! We booked a double queen room, with a bay view (highly recommend)....

It didn't have the bathrobes and pillow chocolates of a 5 star but the staff was terrific. The room was clean, spacious. The view of the harbor was a pleasure. Except for not enough water pressure for the shower (which the front desk said it would look into), it was a fantastic stay. It is close to restaurants, great walks,...
