6/10 Good

Our stay was just okay. Rooms were not cleaned so well. Dust was present everywhere, causing allergy issues. It took over 3 hours and 4 messages/phone calls to get towels for myself and the children. Grabbed items from the store and stood in line while front desk staff just looked at us and continued talking amongst each other for at least 5 minutes before ever acknowledging we were there. Very disappointed. I have stayed here for the past 3 years... However, Michael - at the bar, was an awesome service provider. That is the only thing good I have to say. I likely will not be staying again because of this experience.

Safe and clean place to stay
Nice and clean hotel with great pool. Rooms are small for 4 people, A/C was average and had to keep asking for coffee/towels for 4 people. They kept servicing the room for three. No comfortable amenities in lobby. Excellent, safe location near the wharf. Valet guys were sweet and helpful.
