Nice little hotel. Very convenient location. Close to the State Street and The Marina, with all the activities. Everyone was really friendly and the premises were kept clean. This was our second time here

You'll have to walk to the beachfront and then up State Street, but it's about half an hour in total. Or you can walk to Stearns Wharf (about 10 minutes) and get the free shuttle up to the Downtown areas.
