Nice room, nice location, great view. The room was clean and pleasant smelling. The ladies at the front desk were quite welcoming when we arrived and let us know what amenities were available for us throughout the hotel. The continental breakfast let a lot to be desired, but overall it was a nice stay.

I am sorry that you had issues with the sofabed. I have just recently replaced quite a few of those. Otherwise it sounds as though you had a super time. People have had very good luck fishing from our pier this year including a 22 inch flounder and many crabs. We will look forward to a future visit. Thank you... More

This hotel was everything I expected (from the reviews). The beautiful sunset was a bonus! All rooms have private balconies with water views. In-room fridge was clean and worked well. The dock has the best sunset view. Very friendly staff.

Our room was very clean and spacious, with small eating table, a sofa, and two queen beds. All amenities were there. We had a nice view of the bay, and the hotel was quiet while we were there (ie: not noisy). Front desk was very helpful.
