Nice but lumpy with bad steak
We had a very nice stay. The room was large and clean. My only complaint would be the lumpy bed. The staff was nice and the cookies were amazing! Oh the restaurant Jack's was not great. I had one of the worst filet mignon I've ever had. Sad.

Good6.0
Very nice hotel just steps from the wharf. Staff at front door and check in friendly, helpful and cheerful. Room clean and quiet. Shower and tap water next morning was luke warm at best, therefor disappointing for the cost of the room. Certainly hope that this was only a problem for this particular room. Mentioned this upon check out.

Hotel is very clean and has a nice lobby and great amenities such as a room fan. The views from the hotel rooms are not as advertised though and the rooms are a bit small.
