Service and Staff
Property condition


Staff never asked how our stay was. I’m sure they knew the answer. Smelly, dirty run down hotel. Flooded beach area. Dirty broken chairs at the beach. Breakfast was ok. Small pillows, bugs in corner of room. I switched to a room water front, and it was much better for some reason.

4/5 Good

The lack of elevators to the top two floors is really inconvenient when you have a lot of luggage. Other than that , I have only good memories and highly recommend this hotel.

Room was dirty and the mattress was really bad. A/C units worked great but overall messy.

Stayed 1 night in Jul 2019


The king/queen bed suite was clean and set up nicely. Plenty of room for our family of 4. The shuttle service to the ferry was very convenient. However, lots of things could have been better: no working coffee pot in our room until our last hours there (even after calling the front desk), only gave us decaf coffee, towels were not restocked, no fitted sheet for king size bed, keys stopped working on our last day (had to wait in the rain for them to get our room accessible again).
