The place is beautifully decorated. The back patio is gorgeous and has a little seating area. Parking was on site and room was easily accessible. Walking distance to the Warf and the ocean. Really great restaurants right around the corner. Quiet.

The fireplaces and logs they gave us for the room were an excellent touch! Any questions we had, they were happy to answer and point us in the right direction. Definitely recommend! Great location! Lots of things in walking distance!
