We have stayed here several times over the years. Just recently we came for a short 2 night stay. As always customer service was very good. We always book a room with a harbor view. It’s nice the rooms have a balcony so you can sit and enjoy the beautiful weather and the view. The pool and spa were open but unfortunately, the spa was packed. 5 adults and 6 little kids. I went and asked at the front desk about kids in the hot tub plus instructions given at check in said only 4 ppl at a time . I was told that they don’t really enforce it and to come back at night when the kids were sleeping. I wasn’t too happy about that. Also I informed them that ppl were vaping in the pool area and again apparently that’s acceptable. So needless to say we didn’t use the hot tub. Parents here’s some advice ...kids don’t belong in hot tubs !! The room was clean and the bedding and linens were comfortable. The AC in our room was awful though. Way too loud so it was nice to leave the slider open for a breeze. We’re sad to hear that in a couple of years they will tear it down and replace with I’m sure a more expensive hotel that charges resort fees and parking etc . This is just a quaint little hotel that may not be fancy but it’s clean and great location and great staff .

Our stay was very nice! The check in staff was outstanding! She made us feel welcomed and was so nice to speak to! The location of the hotel was right on the marina and our room on the 3 floor overlooked the boats and water! The room itself was very clean. I would say though that it due for an update/renovation! Outside of that, we enjoyed our stay!

I am irritated from our recent stay. The location could not have been any more perfect, but the service was less than mediocre. Twice there were no towels for us when we were using the pool, so we had to drip dry. Then, one morning we did not have any food for breakfast... nothing! We asked the staff what we were supposed to do, and she said she had no clue that we should go ask the manager. The other mornings for breakfast, we were told we needed to warm up our oatmeal in our microwave, but… we didn’t have a microwave. Then the other mornings there weren’t spoons available for the yogurt and oatmeal. What’s the point of having oatmeal and yogurt without a spoon? I paid for a hotel with breakfast, a pool with towels and service when needed. Based on the low reviews, I didn’t expect the service to be outstanding, but I still expected what I paid for... food, towels and utensils for the food. Upon check out, the woman who asked me how my stay was, she was wonderful. However, There is no real customer satisfaction other than apologizing and telling me that is not the service I should have received. She then did inform me that you can use forks for your oatmeal And yogurt.

The only reason to stay at this hotel at the prices they charge is because it is the only hotel directly at the marina. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations and was very tired. The ONE small lobby elevator took forever and the stairs were very far away. There was no microwave and the bathroom was not female friendly, as it has a pedestal sink with no storage or shelving area, making it difficult to get ready. The beds, however, were very comfortable. Won't stay here again.

Great location as my husband could walk to his charter fishing trip. Julie at the front desk was very friendly and very helpful as the first room we got was junk! The second room was a little better. This hotel needs a complete remodel everything about it is old and worn out. We were right next to the elevator and everytime it went down it sounded like a jackhammer going off!!
