The Good
This hotel was a definite guest pleaser. Staff stood out as exceptional to many who found this a very friendly and comfortable place to stay.

Rooms were invariably clean, although dated, and guests reported having a good night's rest.

The location was superb, close to the waterfront and all things downtown, with pedway access on rainy days.

Guests had room service and ate at the restaurant. Both were equally enjoyed. One recent guest summed it up this way, "The hotel's downtown, and near wharf location, its restaurant, its people and service are absolutely top notch!"

Guests seemed to indicate that the room price was commensurate with the amenities and location offered.

The Bad
Guests were generally pleased, but some did offer a little negative feedback.

A few guests complained of expensive pricing. They mentioned the rooms, the restaurant and the parking.

Some were displeased with the facility and said the rooms were small and the bathrooms old and dated and occasionally guests were disturbed by partying guests in nearby rooms or the noise associated with the elevator nearby.
