    Sunday night in the Harbor

    Very good 8.0
    Staff were friendly, room was clean, close to the pier but building is very old. I also like the view harbor view
    Mohamed, us1 night trip
    Good 6.0
    Just ok, would not stay there again.
    The renovations should have extended into the bathrooms. The location is great if you want to be close to the touristy stuff but terrible if you actually want to sleep. The front desk attendant needs a refresher course on how to welcome guests. Hospitality 101.

    Great hotel
    My husband and I stayed here for a little get away and it was great location, however you will be walking a ton to go to any restaurants or for wine tasting. All the staff were very nice, accommodating, and professional. The room was clean and comfortable. Would definitly stay here again.

    Great Hotel across the street from beach!
    Great location between Harbor and Pier. Both areas have shops and restaurants to walk to. Even a grass park across the street. Nicely remodeled. Very comfy beds.
    Paula, us1 night family trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Love this place, small but very clean. And they have updated rooms that are not posted yet so it was a treat to get a upgrade.
    Janea, us1 night family trip
    Fair 4.0
    Didn't get what I paid for
    This hotel was really disappointing. I paid extra to book a room that stated was a "Harbor View with a balcony" When I arrived to the room I found a space on the balcony that was no more then 2 ft wide. Only a chair fit and to top it off there were nothing but trees in front. No harbor view. Then, to top it off, it advertised "free breakfast" then to find out that the entire restaurant was shut down. Absolutely will not book this hotel again.
