                    This is a great place. Nice staff and a computer in the lobby that actually worked. Confirmed my opinion that you guys are doing your homework. Could do a little better on breakfast, however (a little bit on the Motel 6 side)

                    3.2

                    This was a great disappointment. I was traveling alone and did not expect what I found. The hotel is NOT oceanside(it's a harbor) and the pool is VERY small. My room had paper thin walls and the door open out into a noisy outside pathway near the pool. The website sounded way better than the actual place. I checked in but did not stay.

                    The room was spotless and comfy. I love the sparkling, white linens.

                    Nice, clean, friendly service

                    Bathroom area a little outdated, couldn't use bath tub plunger didn't work

                    We were put next to a room/area that there was construction going on and was not able to relax in our room with all the noise that it caused.

                    The room was had a very pleasing and relaxing decor. The swimming pool was nicely heated for October time of year. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

                    The Bathroom had a standup shower that leaked all over the bathroom floor. I let the front desk know when we checked out. He said they would look into it and fix it. It would seem to me that problem has been there for a while since it was so glaring.

                    I left a card with my comments, but in short : very little counter space in bathroom, noise throughout the night (could not find the source, some engine noise on and off, very unnerving), bath towel non absorbing, one towel bar in bathroom, no hook, etc...

                    We had a waterfront view, and it was walking distance to downtown shopping.

                    The staff were just barely helpful.

                    The staff was very nice wen we got to the hotel, and help alot about finding a great a good mexican restraunt. They also got us cabs as needed.

                    We will never stay at this hotel again. We asked to use a bathroom after we got back to pick up our luggage. They said they had no bathroom that we might use. We had turned our key in when we left for our walk untill we came back for our luggage. They told us to go across the street to the public bathrooms!! Would you stay in a place like this. also my husband has had four back operations and i`m having a new hip in one month!!

                    Perfect location, just in front of the beach and easy to access. The room is clean and big enough.

                    limited choice of breachfast.

                    Good location, across the road from the beach and within walking distance of town; free parking, friendly and helpful staff.

                    Nothing - all good.

                    Within walking distance of State Street (shops and restaurants) the beach and pier. Swimming pool and pleasant outside seating area. Breakfast included.

                    Our view of the pool room was quite noisy.

                    It was just across the street from the beach and a park. It was a nice location near lots of resturants.
