    Wonderful Stay-cation

    We spent the night for our anniversary. I was impressed by the buildings/grounds. It was very pretty. We enjoyed a drink in the bar, and breakfast in the restaurant the next morning. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great view

    We had a marina view with 2 queens- the marina view can’t be beaten. This is our 3rd time staying here- once before in 2015 & then 2018. The staff is very friendly & on site breakfast restaurant delicious and a great deal. The rooms are ok- the furniture seemed scratched up and a bit dated but the beds are comfy. Would recommend!

  • 2.0.Poor

    Uncomfortable and Old W/ Funky Smell

    Honestly, very disappointed with our stay. My wife and I booked a weekday two-day staycation and the pictures were extremely deceiving. The actual room was very run-down. Our “Marina View” was obscured by stairs. Not cool.

    So enjoyable!

    Far better than I was expecting. Overall establishment was great. Rooms where great. Staff was awesome. This place really was enjoyable. Ended up having to get a second room for my one of my daughters and my sons GF after "rescuing" them from another place. They where able to get them into a junior suite just down the hall from us and Danny was just like no biggie I do awesome stuff for weary travelers everyday. This trip went from a potential PITA to thoroughly enjoyable. Yeah, we will definitely stay here again. But next time I'm bringing a fishing pole.
