Very friendly staff and excellent location that is walking distance to everything. Nicely remodeled rooms and nice pool area.

The pool was covered in black mold and bird droppings. Could not swim in the pool because of it. The first room we entered had a window that wouldn’t completely close and the floor was tile and had not been cleaned. The next room we were placed in still had a dirty floor so we made do by placing towels on the floor near the bed to use as rugs. In the morning we lost power to the microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator and tv. Office is closed from 11:30 pm until 9:00 am and since this happened around 8:00 am, no one was available to help with the situation. A phone number was available but no one answered when called. No phone in rooms so had to go downstairs to office to try to get help with anything. Problem was corrected after a couple of hours. The tv always had crackly lines in it when viewing. No one during the day spoke English well so communication was almost impossible. The tile on the shower stall floor was wall tile and very slippery. A rubber mat was furnished but very small and if you stepped off of it, you slid. Someone was mopping the outside deck and no wet floor sign was placed anywhere, Slippery and dangerous! A deck and chairs was available for looking at the beautiful view but had people constantly smoking in the area so it was unusable for a nonsmoker. 3 of 4 lights in the room weren’t working. If we were to get a refund and find another hotel, we were told it would take about 5 days to receive because we booked through Orbitz so we decided to stay.

our stay here was great. the room was very nice and we loved watching the boats from our window. All of our favorite historical sites were within short walking distance and the staff were very kind. we will definitely be back in the future.

Very convenient. Good value for the area. Not very family friendly with the sharp bed corners and shelves but wouls definitely recommend it and consider going back.

Love the design of the room . And plenty of hot water in a beautiful shower

Really enjoyed our stay. Completely updated place, view is great, pool is 24/7 which is great for late night dip.

The location is fantastic!! Nice views and walking to everything! Rooms were decent. For the price I felt fortunate to find this placem I would stay again!

Upgraded modern room amenities. Great price for area!

Very convenient but the walls are thin

Liked that all rooms were bayview.

Amazing for the price. Rooms were clean and very attractive. Obviously an older property that was meticulously and tastefully refurbished. Great location. Great value.

Close to the city. Dog friendly. No carpet on floors, which is what we prefer.

The location is perfect! All rooms have bay view and everything is withing a 3-5 minutes walking distance.

Great location with recently renovated rooms made this a decent place to stay. The property is challenged by what I consider to be sub-standard cleaning in the bathroom and an exterior that is in dire need of renovation to match the interior of the rooms.

Extremely happy with location. Rooms were clean. I wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Nice rooms and great location! Walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go.

Location was good but we found three baby cockroaches in the room and the bedsheets had stains. When we mentioned about the cockroaches to the manager she responded “I know, they walk in when the door is open while cleaning the room.” Needless to say, we’ll never stay at this hotel again.

It was ok, great stuff rooms a bit dirty for the price
