  • 7.4

    Not fancy, but fine for the money. Easy walk to lighthouse and view of the bridge.

    Very musty smelling!!! Read that in other reviews as well. No towel bars to hang up hand towel. Should be an easy, inexpensive fix.

  • 5.8

    Friendly staff

    Under construction

  • 6.6

    breakfast was a coffee pot, toaster with loaf of bread, and muffins

  • 8.2

    Bed was standard, sheets and blanket were every clean. One thing I liked the air conditioner was very quiet.

    One chair in our room was old and springs shot, not comfortable. T. V. Picture was distorted looking.

  • 2.4


    It was filthy, insufficient linens for 2 travelers, towels were damp, wall air conditioner was inadequate for the small room, remodeling debris blocked enterance, and made sitting on the private balcony impossible. All windows and mirrors were overtly dirty with multiple splatter droplets, soap dish was dirty. All of this was after I called the front desk and told them upon entering the room there were soiled linen in the bathroom. She was in bathroom 10 minutes but never attended the dirty mirror.

  • 4.2

    The staff seemed friendly but I was rather upset when I returned to my room after being gone all day and found that the cleaning people did not close my door all the way so it would lock. I had a laptop and two tablets that I had put away in the drawer since there was no place to lock them up. Good thing they were still there when I got back. Pretty poor on their part. There wasn't any apology when I reported it. I definitely would not stay there again. They also seemed a little stingy on the coffee they left in the room. There was a cigarette burn in the blanket, they should have replaced that.

  • 4.6

    They had a room available when I needed a room. The water was really hot which was good (though maybe not for everyone).

    This place looks awful. There was a tarp over most of the main section and it looks pretty run down. The boards on the balcony and walkway were scary. The beds were absolutely awful. So hard so if you like to sleep in the floor (which actually felt softer) then you'll be fine. They have sliding glass doors to enter the room. When we arrived ours was not locked. The window was open but it had a screen. There was a dirty washcloth wrapped up in the shower curtain but it was late and I didn't feel like dealing with it. I'm not sure how they clean. I had a small dog and he was very interested in certain spots even though he didn't have an accidents. The room did not smell though. The shower head is low so if you're over 5-5 be prepared to bend. The water temp was really hot (which was good). It's really close to the bridge but the traffic didn't really bother me. The free wi-fi was from the hotel next door. It was there when I needed something that was pet friendly but I'll never stay there again.

  • 2.8

    The place was under construction, we had to walk over material to get to our room. The roof over our room had a tarp on it!! Staff was rude!! No cars in any of the parking spaces, sign said vacancy, when we asked to be changed to another room the rude lady at the desk said they were full. We left and drove 55 miles south to get a place. Can't believe that this crap hole would even be on the option list. Wouldn't let a dog sleep there!!! This review only lets you select certain faces in some categories and I am sure the review number is above a 1. I would rate it a minus 5, would have slept outside before paying $135.00!!! Save your money or stay someplace else!!!

  • 5.0

    The location was good.

    The overall service could have been better. The second morning, after leaving for the day, housekeeping did not go into our room to clean or replace towels and leave another coffee packet. Trash was also left. I had to go to the office for clean towels.

  • 10.0

    Great place to stay,.within walking distance to attractions , will.stay here again in the future

    Great as is :)

  • 5.4

    Bed was nice room was clean

    There were earwigs crawling on the walls. And I got double charged for the room. Witch I don't think is right. I paid it on here then when I got there I was made to pay it again. Someone needs to give me my money back that wasn't right.

  • 4.2

    Cheapest place. Bike ride is literally seconds away from the bridge.

    Rooms were dirty, tub did not drain. Staff not friendly. Housekeeping was poor.

  • 7.4

    I liked the location. It was near the water and the shops downtown.

    The bathroom and shower are very small. The parking is also very hard to use if someone is parked in the parallel spots.

  • 7.8

    did not have cots if you have more then 4 people

  • 3.8


    Old outdated, very limited breakfast, less than enthusiast staff person
