4/10 Fair

The hotel is in a great location. The biggest problem is NO air conditioning.Speak to front desk and they advised not working, or it’s not on because late in the season. This wouldn’t have been a problem if we were able to open the windows and doors. Our unit was on the waterfront with lots of street lighting. Noise until 3-4am. So, opening door and windows wasn’t a choice unless you can sleep though all the light and noise.
