      Good location and value for the money

      Location--easy walk into town & waterfront. Staff recommended Cafe This Way for breakfast & we enjoyed it so much we went again our second morning-- unusual for us not to try somewhere different each day. Would definitely stay there again due to location.

      Paneling on walls might have contributed to the mustiness of the room. Yes, it seemed "old" but the beds were comfortable & linens clean & we rarely spend time in our room anyway.

      I was most impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of each staff member we encountered. I would go back again solely because of this.

      Location. Close to the shops and ocean side. Quiet spot.

      The room could have been cleaner. Hair in shower when we arrived. Furniture dusty.

      I truly believe it is American owned. I haver personally never stayed in a foreign-owned facility this clean. They take good care of and maintain an older facility. The bathrroms were nicer than a lot newer chains (Motel 6, Budget 8, etc) that I have stayed in recently.

      The office does not open early enough for coffee for us early birds

      The location, the price, the friendliness of the staff

      very simple, rooms still needed airing but it was early in the season. Perhaps a thin curtain besides the light-blocking curtain would help make the room more friendly during the day

    • Older travelers

      clean, comfortable place to sleep, in a very convenient location. Very helpful and friendly staff compensated for lack of"fancy amenities". Will recommend and will stay here again.

      This older building permits noise from rooms above (we were on lower level)

      I like the location. It is not great as far as the rooms are concerned - stuck in the 60'S. However , the price is reasonable, the location great and they are pet friendly. I have stayed there several times due to the above. Needs major upgrading but you get what you pay for !

      I arrived late (7 pm), and they taped the key to their door, but no one was in the office.

      it would have been nice to have the wireless password available in the room....
