This was a great place to stay. I am one of those people that checks everything when they are staying in a hotel. Everything was clean and orderly. I was impressed. They have a bottle service if you would wine or beer in your room. The front desk manager was super nice too. The continental breakfast was well stocked and full of variety (gluten free options too!). We will definitely be staying here again instead of with other hotel chains in the area. Excellent establishment.

The hotel was amazing! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We even met the wonderful owners of the property. The lobby had fresh flowers also has a fireplace. 24 hours of yummy snacks including fresh baked cookies. The towel were very soft, YAY! We had a suite that faced the bayside. The best spot to stargaze. The front of the property has a fire pit with chairs around it which we hung out after our morning run. Location is walkable to the canal shops and restaurants. We will be coming back again. Thank you South Pier Inn
