4/10 Fair

You get what you pay for! Filthy
The floor was sticky and made my feet black. The microwave was not cleaned, the refrigerator had somebody's cheese sauce left in it and a hair was in the back of it. There was hair in the tub and hair on the shower wall. There were water spots around the sink. I assumed that the room was not cleaned at all so I asked for clean sheets. The hostess gave me clean sheets but didn't ask if I wanted anything else cleaned. I assume that's because they didn't have any staff to clean it. In the lobby for breakfast there was very little to choose from and no coffee! We got a refund for the room being so dirty

Beautiful place to enjoy a night on the water
Loved that there's a firepit on the water with a shed full of wood for a small fee. I had been looking forward to a beach fire and brought some matches on my travels from California. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice little breakfast setup as well.
