The room was clean. The TV remote was sanitized. But no pay-per-view available to watch, only live TV. The available power wall outlets were few and inconveniently placed. One was across the room in a corner behind a chair. One was behind the bed. One was next to the bed, but was being used for a lamp and alarm clock. Those should have been plugged in behind the bed, leaving a outlet clear for visitors to use. Or at least put in a few power strips so there are more easy-to-access outlets. No outlets were near the desk at all. There were USB connections on the lamps, but not all device chargers use USB. WiFi worked, but the connection was completely unsecure, not even basic encryption was used. The bathroom toilet was very low to the ground, hard to sit down on and stand up from. Also, the flush was very noisy, causing rumblings in the surrounding walls. The walls between rooms were pretty thin, we could hear neighbors talking, having sex, etc. We had a room with a view of the harbor. The view was nice, but the main street was right below our window, and was pretty noisy with cars racing up and down the street all night. All in all, it is a quaint little hotel. It is good for short stays, if all you really need is a bed, but I probably wouldn't want to stay for an extended vacation.

We stayed at this establishment over President's Day weekend. The location is great. We brought our bikes, and rode along the beach. It was super convenient, we could ride directly from the hotel parking lot. The staff even let us store our bikes in the lobby for safe keeping. The view of the harbor is a nice touch. The renovations that the hotel did 1.5 years ago is nice and modern. My 3 kids enjoyed it. Too bad due to COVID, there was no breakfast. But they did provide coffee, tea, granola bars, and fruit (which my kids enjoyed). The street is loud along the harbor side. Also, the balcony is quite narrow. There were a lot of dining establishments walking distance. We had a great time.

My second stay here. Always great and friendly staff willing to help. Parking and check in/check out process is easy. Great location close to the beach and only a couple blocks from state street. We will be coming back.
