I liked that it was close to the ferry. The grounds are clean and appealing. The office is very fancy, to bad the rooms weren't as nice. What didn't I like? Let's see" no coffee maker, no hair dryer, no iron in the room. Oh' but wait, there wasn't even a clock in the room. I had to go to the front desk to get toilet paper since none was provided for you in the room as there were wasn't any kleenex either. Nothing to tell you of attractions or places that might be delivering to the hotel/motel. No pen or paper to write with if you needed to write something down. The use of space in the room was not good there was no place to set anything, anywhere, especially in the bathroom.The mini fridge the microwave the tv and a light (which didn't work) are all plugged into an extention cord into one outlet because half the outlets in the room did not work. Can you say "Fire Hazard". When you book your stay, they say they are ":pet friendly", and they are to a certain extent. What they don't tell you is about the up charge of said animals until you check in which is an added charge your not expecting. If your animal weighs more than 25# your sol (s--t out of luck) as they don't accept them which you don't know until you arrive :(... I won't stay here again and I certainly would not recommend this facility to anyone if they were to ask me about my stay. This was a king room.
