    I had been searching for a place that was pet friendly and they were so accommodating. They were very reasonable priced and had amazing customer service. The hotel room itself was clean and a nice size. Had a fantastic anniversary here. Will definitely come again.

    Really enjoyed staying here. It was close to the pier (walking distance), was very clean, had a great breakfast variety (make your own belgium waffles!) and very friendly staff. Would stay again if ever back in town.

    We were there over the winter holiday and they wouldn't let us check in early. Our room wasn't ready so they assigned us to a different one. I think we were checked in and our too about 3:30. We got there a little before 3.
