Peaceful place.
Very clean quiet getaway, really appreciated the ambiance. Check-in was a delight and the staff was really helpful and pleasant. Big ups to Doneisha, she was amazing!. Definitely going to be a regular visitor from now on. Only issue was the bathroom wasn't as clean as it should have been.

Best Vacation This Year
Superb Customer Service !! Decided an adult timeout would be great for a few days so Rod N Reel Restaurant and Cafe was the choice for me. First, the convenient parking garage was the foundation of the trip ;). I pulled up to the entrance of the garage and the arms were raised with signs reading FREE parking. Impossible for 4th of July but totally free :) ! Stopped in the restaurant and was immediately greeted at the entrance by an upbeat delightful hostess who promptly escorted me to a nice booth with the perfect view of the Chesapeake Marina. The view consisted of beautiful sailboats, patrons utilizing jet skis, and cruises full of vacationers quietly floating in and out of the marina. As I was in awe of my spectacular view my waitress quietly approached; in such a calm and peaceful voice she introduced herself and offered her services. I then ordered my meal which consisted of the All-American breakfast with Biscuits and gravy (I was super hungry alright :) ). Each dish arrived within 20 minutes; fresh and really tasty. I continued dining for at least 30 minutes. I stayed at the resort for the night which opened an opportunity to enjoy an evening meal at the adjourning café which there I enjoyed Crabby Fries and 8-Fried Wings all whilst the Karaoke Show took place on stage in front view of my umbrella covered table. I must say; this 4th of July has been outstanding all due to my decision to visit Rod N Reel Resort ;).

Better signs please
Road detour. We had a very hard time getting to it then signs to actual hotel hard to see. No valet or attendant in front to ask where to park. Parking garage in front of the building/construction. Front desk called us because we were late. She could have offered directions as to parking. Resort fee at 1045 pm check in for 6 am departure. No bar or quick bite offered. Rooms were clean and generous in size.
