10,0 Excellent
Pros:Bed was great and everything was clean!
8,8 Great
Pros:Felt solid. Great looking place.
Cons:Check-in could’ve been a little less surly.
9,7 Excellent
Pros:The people were kind. Amenities were really great. The facilities were exceptional.
9,1 Excellent
Pros:The view of the bay was perfect. The staff was truly exceptional.
Cons:The bathroom. While very nice looking and clean, it's layout was not great and the shower was on par with a two star motel.
9,7 Excellent
Pros:Very friendly and attentive staff, light and airy ambience, very well maintained facilities.
Cons:I wasn’t aware of the several mandatory fees that were in addition to the rate. This was disappointing.
10,0 Excellent
5,7 Passable
Pros:Good location.
Cons:They are charging you for a bottle of red wine that is in your room. They tell you as they are giving you the key that it's included in the price - well we didn't drink the wine nor did we want to pay for it. It doesn't matter that if you don't want it - you are paying for it anyway, how ridiculous!
4,0 Mediocre
Cons:Heat didn't work. Charged $28 for parking without alerting us in advance. Room was completely standard of any hotel. Room service forgot our dressing, and the food was subpar
8,0 Great
Pros:Great room on marina.
Cons:It took over an hour to check in. Hotel did not have my Kayak reservation right and I had to spend a lot of time on the phone getting it straight. Also, make sure you get a room with a water view.
7,1 Good
Pros:The staff was very friendly and accommodating at the front desk, restaurants, housekeeping, and pool. Room was big and it was nice getting bottled water every day. Food at the restaurant (lunch) was surprisingly good and sitting outside by the bay was enjoyable.
Cons:Overall, the facility was "tired" and is in need of renovations. Especially, the pool area lounges and chairs were old and stained. We prefer fitted sheets (which these were not) and carpets throughout the hotel (room, elevator, halls) need attention. We were told by one of the maintenance personnel who was in our room to fix a sliding shutter door, that the hotel was be remodeled within the next 3 months which is encouraging. Location was somewhat of a catch-22. It was nice being on the harbor but you really couldn't walk anywhere to shop or eat. Must have car if you want to go anywhere off site. Overall, we had a good time.
