I have been visiting The Whaler for years. Since the new owners came on board I’ve noticed an ongoing patterns of continuous “cutting of corners”.

Okay motel. The best part is definitely the view. I've had better hotel breakfasts, but at least their breakfast feels clean. The staff at the desk were welcoming. The popcorn ceilings are unattractive, because they're a feature from the 70s, but the furniture was noticeably new and clean. I was booking on a short notice and this hotel seemed the safest according to reviews. Usually, I would pick a hotel with a fireplace. That's obviously no fault of the staff. It's just the way it's built. Basically, this hotel has everything you need. It just doesn't meet everything I would want.
