Bring your bike if you want to go to town at all
Posted Sep 16, 2016
We have stayed on the island many times and this was the first time at Mission Point Resort. I thought it was inconvenient and expensive to use the hotel shuttle to make the trip into town, 5.00 per person EACH WAY and only runs every hour after Labor Day. Yes, it's only a 20 min walk to the edge of town but if it's raining and cold like when we were there, or you want to dress for dinner in the evening you may not want to walk. We did not bring our bikes, as we were only staying two days and didn't think we would use them. BIG MISTAKE! We found we were constantly waiting for the shuttle or trying to call a cab. Also, we booked the least expensive room and it was about the same size as a cruise ship cabin, and the bathroom was so tiny it was ridiculous. Just a sink with a small shelf over it, no vanity, so trying to use toiletries or do your hair was frustrating as things fell into the sink because there was no place to put them.
