This is a nice clean property. The location is excellent if you want to be close to the harbor and pier, which I did. It is the best value I could find for the location. The reason I rate it four star is the size of the room. I was by myself and it was fine but for two people it is just too small. This is due to the size of the furniture. I travel by myself so I will stay hear again.
