Hotel has gone downhill
This was my third time staying at this hotel and I was extremely disappointed this time. The quality and service have decreased significantly. They started off by charging us an additional fee for using a third party to book. The staff was very rude and unprofessional. Our room on the balcony was missing a rather large piece of siding exposing the ply wood and the screen was falling apart. My wife and I stayed there about two years ago and loved it then. We are not interested in going back.

Anniversary Getaway
Very nice place to stay. Hotel is going through different phases of construction, adding a parking garage, another bar/restaurant, remodeling, etc. so there are blocked areas but this did not effect our stay at all. There does seem to be a disconnect with the front desk staff on what the resort actually has to offer and what's available to the quests at the hotel and the surrounding area. And the gaming rooms definitely need some updating.

Great views and location
Very pleased with the location and view of the Chesapeake from our balcony. Very convenient restaurant with good food. Staff friendly and helpful. However, the room could use some updating. There was no closet. Never experienced that before. Bathtub unsafe. No mat or grippers. Almost slipped when I went to take a shower. The restaurant was lovely and had a great view but the wall of windows should have blinds or tinting. Sun was too strong when we were there for breakfast. Overall we would come back and recommend to others.

Not very clean and had an odd smell
I will say that this place had a lovely balcony. However, the toilet didn't look very clean and the bathroom in general had seen better days. The whole hotel (especially the rooms) has a smell about it that I assume is from cleaning products, but I found myself leaving the window open to get rid of it.
