The location was excellent right in the middle of everything. However the hotel itself was in dire need of updating and cleaning. The beds are old, hard, and squeaky. There is no air conditioning and the carpets need to be cleaned there are stains everywhere. There are no usb hookups to charge your phone. Luckily there is a Walgreens down the street that we walked to to buy a wall charger but I would not stay at this hotel again. I only booked a stay here because it was rated a 3 star but honestly it should be a 1.5 or maybe 2 star rating. I was really disappointed!

We stayed on the “historic” side of the hotel which has no elevator. We needed to take the elevator from the other side to our floor and dragged our bags from the ramp at the entrance of our building. The room was old and needed some renovation. It was not very clean either. But the staff was friendly and the location is perfect and it’s a easy walk to the water.
