The hotel manager was a pleasure to deal with and the price was hard to beat in the snowy off-season. We were assigned to a beautiful nautical themed remodeled room with a private balcony - even the patio furniture was cush. The rooms on the other side of the building had porches with plastic furniture, so I am not sure all the rooms have been upgraded to the extent ours was. Continental breakfast was included. No view to speak of, but that was traded for the walk-able, central location.

I would highly recommend this place for a future stay. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms have been beautifully renovated. I love the fact that they thought enough of their customers to provide Bath & Body Works items in the rooms. The fireplace was a nice touch also. The beds were some of the most comfortable I've ever slept in a hotel. The rooms were clean and well-kept. The only drawback that I had was the exterior doors. We had a problem with the locks. The hotel staff told me that they are in the process of starting the exterior renovation now. I will definitely be back.

We have stayed here in the past and found it to be a nice place. The property has just been renovated with upgraded furniture and room fixtures and other furnishings. It is located near restaurants and other attractions, just leave your car parked and take a stroll to where you want to go. The breakfast could be better, just fruit, yogurt, pastry and cold cereal, typical continental servings all fresh each day.
