When we arrived late afternoon, the room that was reserved for us had not been cleaned. The person who helped us found another room that included an upgrade at no extra cost! Overall we enjoyed our stay. One thing that really bugged me, was the piles of dirty sheets by the stairs outside the laundry ...

Location is great. The pool area is small for the amount of guests the property accommodates.
Very disappointed in the jaquzzi. The photos on the website are very misleading. The size is very small and uncomfortable for even two adults to stretch out in. Also it is in a very dismal setting and the entrance/location is not inviting at all. Also the location of the ice machines is not conducive ...
This is a very interesting old motel that they have renovated. The rooms are spacious and they offer a buffet breakfast in the morning. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay.
Beautiful property but if you have children under 16 you are forced to use a kids pool that is not that fantastic and over run with very small children and having been at this resort many times and used the main pool as a family it was not ideal.
This property is right across street from the ocean. Walking distance to pier, harbor and State street. Great restaurants in walking distance. They include use of bikes in there fees. Lovely wine in lobby/garden area 4-6 pm.
