This hotel is a no frills hotel at a reasonable price. The rooms are clean, but quite old. The furniture is from an early age. There is no decoration. There is only soap in the bathrooms, so bring your own products. The bed was very hard. The setting was beautiful.
Stayed here recently. The beds leave a little to be desired (old spring style mattress), but clean, and worth the price. As others have said, it is an older property, but you can tell the owners keep up with maintenance. This is in a great location, and i would stay here in the future. Convenient walking distance to the Upper Deck and what i would consider "downtown" restaurants (Dry Dock Inn and quietside cafe). It is obviously tourist, season so more traffic than usual but not bad. The picture I uploaded is not the best, but the others posted here capture the area well.
